Welcome to The Secret Library


“I go into my library and all history unrolls before me.” Alexander Smith

Welcome to The Secret Library, home to Leeds Libraries heritage blog.  We hope to bring you insights into the history and architecture of our 1884 Central Library building, a behind the scenes look at the Library and highlights from our Special Collections, including rare books hiding in the stacks. We will also be sharing highlights from our collections held in our branch libraries.

Our library staff will be writing articles showcasing our heritage.  Please get in touch with comments, or requests for anything you wish to know more about.  You can contact the blog directly using the contact link or email localandfamilyhistory@leeds.gov.uk.
