The Library is free to enter, and you don’t need an appointment to visit. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions about book borrowing or what’s on.
In line with current Scottish Government law and guidance relating to Covid-19, the Glasgow Women’s Library building will now remain closed until at least 26th April 2021.
While the building is closed, the GWL staff team will continue to work from home, delivering our Spring programme of digital events, and bringing you news of our work and ways to get involved through our Social Media platforms.
As always, we thank you all for your continued patience and support during these times.
If you wish to access the archive or museum collections, or would like to visit the Library outside these hours, please contact us.
We are sometimes open outwith our usual opening hours for specific events: see the events calendar for details.
Our address is:
Glasgow Women’s Library
23 Landressy Street

See Where to find us for directions to the Library by bus, train, or car.
The Library is wheelchair accessible, with lifts to the first floor and the mezzanine and archive.
An induction loop is available for events – please let a member of staff know if you require this.
We have disabled toilets on the ground and first floors, and all the Glasgow Women’s Library bathrooms are individual closed stalls and are gender neutral.
If you need help accessing the library, or would like more information about access, please contact us and we will be very happy to offer you assistance.
Unfortunately with Covid-19 safety procedures in place, we’re not currently able to offer teas and coffees.
Organising a group visit
The library is a unique, welcoming space with a learning programme, a lending library, an archive and museum store, and exhibition spaces. We are happy to welcome visiting groups from anywhere in Scotland by prior arrangement, when we can show you around and tell you about our history and our plans for the future. It is essential to book group visits in advance. To make arrangements for a group visit and tour, please contact us.
If it is difficult for your group to travel to Glasgow, we can also visit you as part of our national lifelong learning programme.
