Welcome to The Library at Merrion Centre – a FREE sanctuary for those seeking a peaceful escape in the heart of Leeds.

Nestled within the bustling main mall of Merrion Centre, The Library offers a haven of tranquility amidst the vibrant shopping atmosphere. Step inside and immerse yourself in a serene space designed to inspire relaxation, productivity, and creativity.

What to expect…

With comfortable sofas and tables and chairs, The Library invites you to unwind, indulge in a good book, or catch up on work in a quiet and inviting environment.

Whether you’re seeking a moment of solitude or a place to connect with your thoughts, our free space is here to accommodate your needs.

When is it open?

Conveniently open during Merrion Centre’s operating hours, The Library welcomes you to take a break from your day-to-day hustle and bustle. Whether you’re craving a peaceful reading session or a quiet spot to focus, we invite you to make yourself at home within our cozy confines.

Can I bring food/drink into The Library?

We welcome customers to unwind with a cup of coffee or lite bite from one of our shops, cafes or takeaways, or simply enjoy a moment of quiet reflection. All we ask is that visitors please take their rubbish away with them and keep our Library tidy.

Can I donate books to The Library?

The Library is all about community, and we have stocked the free seating area with a small selection of books to read when using the facility.

We encourage those wishing to donate books to consider supporting our wonderful pre-loved stores: Leeds Hospitals Charity, St Gemmas, and British Heart Foundation. However should you wish to leave a book or two for fellow visitors then please feel free to do so!

We look forward to welcoming you to The Library – should you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact us
