Amazing, informative, positive place. Helpful staff. 👌⭐️
Glasgow Women's Library is a warm and welcoming space. The staff and volunteers were endlessly helpful and I could have browsed their excellent collection all day. They had a lovely exhibition in their event space when I visited and the newly renovated building is stunning. A Glasgow gem!
