This functional Central Library is a Grade II listed building which was designed by George Corson in the late 19th Century. The Library was built between 1878 and 1884 and were originally opened as Municipal Offices by Mayor Alderman Edwin Woodhouse in 1884. A number of extensions took place since the building opened and an extensive restoration took place in the late 1990s-early 2000s. The originally Victorian Reading Room is now the Tiled Cafe (please check my
tip).

During doing the Leeds Owl Trail on the VT meet (February 2012) we visited the Central Library to spot an "owl" on its 2nd floor.
