Unfortunately if you do not book in advance (0113 245 7910, yas.library@gmail.com) we cannot guarantee library staff will be on hand to assist you. The Society is currently preparing its collections for transfer to the University of Leeds in 2015 and, is therefore, unfortunately, only able to provide a limited service at present. We Apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We would be grateful if members could please return any borrowed books by 20 February 2015. No loans will be made after 20 December 2014.

Please note the YAS archive collections are currently unavailable
