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.
