Looking to the future
Our beautiful building
Our major renovation project has now been completed, with a beautiful events venue, a custom-built archive storage space, and a gorgeous lift providing access to our top floor.
Sponsor a Library section, shelf or book and dedicate it to a woman of your choice, building a living tribute to remarkable women and raising funds towards the refurbishment costs still needed to complete the transformation of GWL’s permanent new home in Bridgeton.
