Passing on the Baton – Run/Walk the Great Scottish Run for GWL

After our very successful 10K Team effort we are now looking to “pass on the baton” and find both women and men who would like to run/walk the Great Scottish Run and raise funds for GWL.

You can help us to Keep GWL Running!

On 12th May 2013 twenty-five GWL staff, volunteers and supporters ran/or walked the BUPA Great Women’s 10K in Glasgow to Keep Glasgow Women’s Library Running. There’s still time to sponsor the team to help keep GWL running!

Raise money for GWL while you shop!

“Ain’t no stopping us now – we’re on the move”

Trying to get this McFadden & Whitehead disco classic adopted as the GWL theme tune but no luck so far! Anyway “final move” day has dawned (a day late right enough but that’s another story).
