Women on the Shelf

Glasgow Women’s Library’s ‘Women on the Shelf’ fundraising initiative enables individuals and organisations to sponsor a Library section, shelf or book and dedicate it to a woman of their choice.

In this film, three sponsors talk about the women they’ve chosen to celebrate, and why they support Glasgow Women’s Library.

As well as building a living tribute to remarkable women, all the money raised through ‘Women on the Shelf’ goes directly towards the refurbishment costs still needed to complete the transformation of GWL’s permanent new home in Bridgeton.

All our shelves are now sponsored, and we’re in the process of creating markers to commemorate all the women being celebrated. If you’re interested in sponsoring a book as part of the Women on the Shelf scheme, please contact us.
