Leeds Library Celebrates the Jubilee

To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and to increase funds, a Grand Jubilee Soirée was held in the Leeds Library on Friday 1 June 2012 when the library in Commercial Street was decorated with Union Jacks and other bunting. Library members, their guests and other members of the public were entertained with good company, ‘50s Light Programme music, a book sale, a tombola, a 1952 quiz and a ‘guess the sweets in the bottle’ challenge. In addition, there were exhibitions on Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee and the year 1952. Drinks and a buffet completed the evening.
