If you would like to visit the Library outside these hours, please contact us.
We are sometimes open outwith our usual opening hours for specific events: see What’s On for details.
Our address is:
Glasgow Women’s Library
15 Berkeley Street
Glasgow G3 7BW
Glasgow Women’s Library is housed in the Mitchell Library building, but we have a separate entrance from the Mitchell. The Women’s Library entrance at 15 Berkeley Street is next to the Mitchell loading bay.
See Where to find us for directions to the Library by bus, train, or car.
At the moment, our premises are not fully accessible. There is one step and a set of heavy doors at the main entrance, followed by seven more steps and two more sets of heavy doors. We are currently looking into the possibility of adding a stairlift to improve access.
If you need help accessing the library, please telephone ahead and we will be very happy to offer you assistance.
We have a small kitchen where tea and coffee is available for a small donation.
Organising a group visit
The library is a unique, welcoming space with a learning programme a lending library and an archive. We are happy to welcome visiting groups from anywhere in Scotland by prior arrangement, when we can show you around and tell you about our history and our plans for the future. It is essential to book group visits in advance. To make arrangements for a group visit and tour, please contact us.
If it is difficult for your group to travel to Glasgow, we can also visit you as part of our national lifelong learning programme.
