Room hire

We also have rooms for hire in some of our Centres. Prices are currently £5 per hour/part hour for Community and Non-Profit groups & activities and £10 per hour/part hour for all commercial use.

Lists of Centres with definite rooms for hire and possible rooms for hire (at the Manager’s discretion) can be found on the Room Hire Information page.

Community Hubs and One Stop Centres

We have followed the move in other councils for some of our libraries to be co-located with other services through our Community Hubs.

The hubs offer a mixture of housing services, customer services and job searching help and advice. In our hubs reading, online learning, improving your prospects and the fun and facilities of a traditional library are still available in a welcoming open plan environment.

For information on Community Hubs and One Stop Centres across Leeds, you can also visit the Community Hubs and One Stop Centres pages.
