She Made the Library: Exhibition Launch

17th August, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The final exhibition in GWL’s 25th year is a photographic portrait of women who helped to create the Library, and is a powerful and fascinating record of the growth of a unique organisation through collaborative working.

This exhibition evokes a recognition of the thousands of women who have created GWL and how important it is to record cultural and political contributions.

This exhibition launch will be an opportunity to meet, mingle and reminisce about the historical highlights of the Library or discover more about how this resource has grown from the grassroots to a Recognised Collection of National Significance.

We will be toasting the journey vividly illustrated in the exhibition and we also welcome your active involvement to help us put you in the picture. Bring memories, photos and comments to add if you can.

This preview coincides with our Autumn Programme Launch and you can find out more about the exhibition here and see all our GWL25 events here.

#GWL25: How you can help us remember

We are active each day at GWL making sure women and their histories are remembered. This year we have been taking time to remember and record our own. We need your help in naming and honouring the women who have been involved in our history. If you’re not able to come to this exhibition, get in touch or tweet us at #GWL25 with your nuggets of recollections and help us in our efforts to provide the bigger picture of the history of GWL.


This exhibition is free to attend. Booking is recommended but also feel free to drop by. Please book below (you will be taken through the shopping cart but no charge will be made) or you can call us on 0141 550 2267. If you have booked a place and are no longer able to attend please let us know so that we can make your place available to someone else.
