About

Welcome to The Secret Library, home to Leeds Libraries heritage blog.  We hope to bring 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 collections 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 using the contact link or tweet questions using #secretlibraryleeds.

Where more images are available posts will link to our Flickr site.

  1. Hi, ‘Old Leeds Cold Cures’ is fascinating, not least because it relates to the wife of one of third generation professionals, Percival Leigh. Our project details are here: http://www.victorianprofessions.ox.ac.uk
    I was wondering if you would mind if we reblog your blog post on our own project blog? https://victorianprofessions.wordpress.com/
    Kind regards,

    1. Thanks Alison! Here at the Secret Library, we love your interesting blog and were excited to be featured last week. If any Secret Library readers are wondering, Alison replied again on the ‘Old Leeds Cold Cures’ post: Reblogged this on Victorian Professions Blog and commented:
      Thanks for this guest reblog go to the author Ross Horsley who is the Librarian Manager in the Local and Family History Library and Information Service (Leeds City Council).
