To help raise the funds needed for the refurbishment of their new premises and their ongoing work, a team from Collective Architecture are joining 100 supporters of the library running the Glasgow Women's 10k in May. So please dig deep and donate to this fantastic cause!
"Glasgow Women's library will soon be relocating to permanent premises after several years in temporary accommodation. The beautiful early 20th Century, Grade B Listed Carnegie Library in Bridgeton will become our long term home this Spring, allowing us a fabulous opportunity to both consolidate and expand our services."
"As well as a lending library, we hold a wonderful treasure trove of historical and contemporary artifacts and archive materials that celebrate the lives, histories and achievements of women. From Suffragette memorabilia and 1930s dress making patterns to rare 1970s Scottish Women’s Liberation newsletters, it’s all here!
We also support thousands of women across Scotland every year to improve their lives through our services and programmes, including support and activities that tackle a wide range of issues from poverty and women’s health, sexuality and surviving violence.
Empowering women is one of our key aims."
