Coronavirus and caring for our community

At Glasgow Women’s Library, we are monitoring the Covid-19, often referred to as Coronavirus, situation very closely.

We are very aware of our role in protecting the health and wellbeing of the people in our community and so we wanted to provide an update on our response to this growing concern.

Glasgow Women’s Library is currently closed due to the current situation with Covid-19.

We believe that closing our doors is the best way to slow the spread of this virus.

Until we are able to open our doors again, staff are working from home to ensure that some of our activities and collections can be enjoyed digitally and via our social media platforms, with online events, exhibitions and digital tours. Find out more about how we’re opening our digital door here.

We are also continuing to work together as a team to plan for the future so that when the situation changes, we will be ready to deliver our usual vibrant programmes of events.

In the meantime, please keep in touch with us via our website and social media – you can find us on Facebook, Twitter (@womenslibrary) and Instagram (@womenslibrary).

Stay safe and well.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will update the website with any changes as they happen. We thank everyone for their continued support during these difficult times.

    Hi all!
    My name is Zurine Connelly, I’m a Spanish journalist based in Glasgow.
    At the moment I’m working in a project through the Association “La Poderío” a Spanish group of feminist women based in Andalucía.
    We are trying to know how other groups of women are fighting during the Covid 19 in different parts of the world with issues as domestic violence and community problems focus in the women.
    I already have some information about other collectives in Glasgow, but I’m very interested about any actions from you.
    Please it’s possible to send you a questionnaire with some questions?
    Many thanks, stay safe.
