  • Nice and quiet place. Attached cafĂ© has great pies and light snacks.
  • A great place to study! It also has free WiFi.
  • It's great to pop in and use when I'm visiting the city
  • To me, this is one of the hidden gems of Leeds The magic display built around Harry Potter from the British Museum broadened my grandchildren's outlook I print and scan things here. STAFF ARE EXCELLENT dealing with a forgetful senior. Nothing is too much trouble. II like the tiled cafe too.
  • I was completely blown away the first time I visited! A beautiful ornate interior deriving from it's old Victorian beginnings and polite staff who are always willing to lend a hand. However, one of this library's most treasured secrets has to be it's extensive and historic archive which you can browse and ask a member of staff to find for you.
