Leeds Central Library

Since this city’s main public library is located to the left side of the art gallery, as well as stocking a wide array of lending books, it also has a specialist art library, as well as a music and performing arts section and an extensive collection of local and family history.

Besides from books, the Leeds Central Library building was completed in 1884 and is grade two listed. The library’s interior is equally impressive with tiled floors and pillars lining the staircases made of 380 million year old Devonian coral reef.
