The cost of this library was met by a grant from the Carnegie Trust. Built of brick with stone trim, the library is of similar layout to Bramley and Burley branches which were also built at this time. An adult lending area in the centre, children’s library to one side and a reading room on the other with glazed screens between the different areas.
Current status: Much was demolished, but what remains is part of the much bigger Compton Centre – which contains a library run by Leeds City Council (2016)
