The beautiful box went up recently just inside the grounds of Interplay Theatre in Armley.

Leeds Community Foundation provided funding support with West Leeds resident Lola Wilson from Leeds Love Affair helping to pull it all together. The box was painted by Rose Dufton.

The colourful kiosks at the side of the road are packed with books which people can borrow or add to – at no cost.

Earlier this week The Dispatch featured one woman’s appeal to raise money for a Leeds Little Free Library in Kirkstall.

In November, The Dispatch reported how a Little Free Library opened in Rodley, near the canal.

The opening comes just a month after a Little Free Library was unveiled on the Westdale estate in Pudsey and last week another library was unveiled in Newlay. They can also be found in West Leeds at Landseer Grove in Bramley and The Newlands in Farsley.


While you’re here…

Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!

There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.

We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.

And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.

To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!

And we need YOUR help to continue …

For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).

As a thanks you’ll get your name on a roll of honour on our website. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters about your neighbourhood.

Achieving a bedrock of supporters will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.
