Immerse yourself in tales and poems from around the world, as we rediscover the joy of being read to. From wild and windswept wonderlands, to fearless feminist fairytales, Story Café will spark your curiosity and freshen your perspective. So why not sit back and relax, top up your tea, and become part of the story.

Story Café, Thursdays 6th June to 27th June, 8th, 15th and 29th August and 12th September, 12.30pm to 2.30pm, £2/Free, Women only

It’s great if you’re new to reading, are struggling to find the time to read, or just want to sit back, relax and enjoy listening to stories and poems being read aloud. It’s the perfect way to try new types of writing, and it’s also a brilliant way to meet new people. We love to see new faces around the table, so why not top up your tea and become part of the story. Packed lunches welcome!

‘I just felt like being in the GWL heals the soul/spirit/body/mind/everything’ – Story Café Attendee

This event is for women only* and there is no need to book. There are two ticket options for this event: a £2 ticket and a Free ticket. If a ticket price of £2 is in any way a barrier to you attending this event please choose a Free ticket. We also offer a Free ticket if you are a Friend of GWL.

*All women-only events are inclusive of Trans and Intersex women, as well as non-binary and gender fluid people.


Glasgow Women’s Library is wheelchair accessible, with lifts to the first floor and the Mezzanine Floor. We have accessible toilets and all the bathrooms are individual closed stalls and are gender neutral. Our larger Events Space is fitted with an induction loop. A portable induction loop is also available. For paid events free companion tickets are available.
