'Hidden' library in Leeds celebrates 250th birthday

The oldest surviving subscription library of its kind in the UK is celebrating its 250th birthday.

The Leeds Library, on Commercial Street, has a collection of about 140,000 books and currently costs up to £132 to be a member.

It became a charity in 2008, doubling its membership to 1,000 in the process, and grows its collection by 1,500 books a year.
