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.
Knowing that you can change someone’s life for the better is a powerful thing. As a Friend, and from as little as £2 per month, you can ensure that our work continues now and for future generations, and develops in new directions.
Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do so we were really chuffed when the Volunteer Programme was shortlisted for an award.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon joined us at Glasgow Women’s Library last weekend for The Great Get Together Tea Party and Lunch in honour of murdered MP Jo Cox. In partnership with the Scottish Government, the event was just one of thousands taking place across the country that marked one year since Jo was tragically killed.
Join our tour guides to explore the hidden histories of women across Glasgow, pick up one of our Women's Heritage Walk maps, or download one of our Audio Tours.
Help with reading, writing and numbers
We can help you brush up on skills such as filling out forms, working out bills or essay writing.
We pride ourselves on our warm welcome and this extends to all of the events that take place within our building. Find out more here about holding your event at GWL.
