The Library was established in 1999 primarily for the use of local preachers, ministers and worship leaders in the Leeds (North East) Circuit. Others who wish to borrow, including preachers from other circuits in the Yorkshire West District, and people who are not preachers, may do so. The collection, which is housed in the Circuit Office at Lidgett Park Methodist Church, is accessible:
whenever the Circuit Office open – i.e. usually 8.00 am to 4.00 pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday;
evenings when church groups are meeting (if there's a steward or minister available who can unlock it);
after Sunday services.
