The oldest serving private library in the UK, The Leeds Library (not to be confused with Leeds Central Library) opened up in 1768 and still offers a unique service to its members to this day.
It is said to provide shelter for one of its former employees from many years ago. It’s widely thought that in 1884, Chief Librarian John McAllister was working late into the evening when he encountered a “pallid and hairless” figure in one of the corridors. He later learned that the ghost he witnessed looked just like his predecessor Thomas Sternberg!
This was not the end of the haunting of the Leeds Library ghost encounters continue to this very day! it seems, to linger among the old books. Librarians working at the library after dark report extinguished lamps being mysteriously re-lit in Sternberg’s old office, Books flying off the shelves, heavy footsteps and ghostly voices.
Poltergeist activity is also very common!
