]In 2018 we will be celebrating our 250th Anniversary.  As the oldest Membership Subscription Library in the country we aim to celebrate and mark this milestone for the Leeds Library with a programme of exhibitions, displays, talks, performances and writing throughout the year.  We will be opening up our collections so that Members and non members alike can come into contact with our rich treasure trove of literature gems and develop an understanding and appreciation as to how the Library is part not just of the history of Leeds but also has a role to play in its future.

We are talking to a number of arts, heritage and cultural organisations about working with us on different aspects of the programme along with writers, poets and performers.  It is hoped that the programme will enable access to the Library, its collection and its unique spirit like never before.

Over the coming month more details on the programme to mark the Anniversary will be detailed on this page along with a full events programme so please check this page out on a regular basis so that you can be kept up to date on our exciting plans for the programme of events.
