The Move

Update on the Lending Collection

Our Lending Library catalogue is now back up and running after last week’s technical problems. However, we will be starting to pack up the lending collection in preparation for our imminent move, and access will be limited after next week.

Sun, scones, bikes and history!

On a blazing sunny Saturday afternoon three led cycle rides set off from Kelvingrove Park, Queen’s Park and Tollcross Park, courtesy of the lovely Belles on Bikes ride leaders. Destination: our future home in Bridgeton!

Give a Damn about Glasgow Women’s Library

Next year GWL will finally relocate into permanent premises when we will move to the beautiful Bridgeton Library building. We urgently need your support to help us raise the money needed for the internal refurbishment and to help us to sustain our work in the longer term.
