Our Clubs have now gone online. We have set up a Members’ online community forum to help you keep in contact with us and each other. The forum can be found at https://theleedslibrary.freeforums.net and will be administered over the coming weeks and months by the staff team. Any Member wishing to join the forum will be required to register, but we hope it is a channel of communication that many of you will consider using either to contact the Library team or to contact one another. We will add discussion groups and content to the forum throughout the coming weeks.

Book Club @ The Leeds Library

Our next Members’ Book Club is on Monday April 20thThe Beginning of Spring, Penelope Fitzgerald  (1989).

Further dates are Mondays: 18th May and 15th June. Books to be announced soon.

The Book Club is open to all Library Members. No booking is required, just drop in. If you can’t make it and want to find out about what was discussed, Richard writes a blog article which you can access on the website and our social media channels after each Book Club meeting. If you have any questions please contact Fiona: gellf@theleedslibrary.org.uk. The current Tuesday morning book club continues as normal.

Craft Club @ The Leeds Library

The Library is running a free monthly Members’ Craft Club. As well as giving you the opportunity to bring your own projects and work on them, you will be able to meet other members in a relaxed and creative atmosphere and share advice and swap ideas.

We welcome knitters, sketchers, felters, beaders, embroiderers, calligraphers, model makers, jewellery makers, cross-stitchers and others at all levels of ability.

We will provide free tea and coffee and all we ask is that your craft is portable as we can’t store things for you.

 

Film Club @ The Leeds Library

Our very popular Members’ Film Club is held twice a month (currently on the first Saturday and the middle Wednesday of the month) and is open to all Library Members.

Jane and Aidan select seasons of films and a list of forthcoming movies is available at the Counter.

Using the space in the New Room, we create an intimate setting using the library’s comfiest chairs!

Our current comedy season is I’ll Have What She’s Having.

Your membership of the Library automatically includes membership of the Film Club, so why not join us? All films are free of charge and refreshments are available at £4.00 per head. Please register your attendance via our Events page.
