VANDALS have targeted Glasgow Women's Library and other locations in Bridgeton in recent weeks - with graffiti. 

The library, which has been in the area for 25 years, said graffiti had been left on their Grade B Listed Building as well as others in the East End area. 

In a letter dated July 24, which was shared on social media by politician MSP John Mason, the library addresses the issue and calls for local residents to report to those responsible to the police. 

The letter states: "I'm sure that you will have noticed the graffiti which has appeared in our local area over the past couple of weeks. We've noticed it on people's house windows, on cars and on buildings including our own library, which is a Grade B Listed Building. 

"We are very proud of our building and our community and saddened about the recent vandalism. We wanted to let you know that we have reported these instances to the police and told them of the graffiti happening nearby us on Landressy Street - and we wanted to ask you to please let us know if you have any relevant information (anonymously if you would prefer), or to get in direct contact with the police.

"In the meantime, people come from all over the world as well as from around the corner to visit Glasgow's Women's Library - we are open to everybody so please do come and see us, we'd love to welcome you."

MSP John Mason added: "Saw a number of these notices in Bridgton. It is disappointing that Glasgow's Women's Library has been subject to vandalism and graffiti, as have other property."

Glasgow Times:

Glasgow Women’s Library grew out of an arts organisation Women in Profile, which was set up in 1987 with the aim of ensuring Glasgow’s year as the European City of Culture in 1990 included plenty of representations from women.

It began life in Garnethill, then moved to Trongate and eventually settled in its current home on Landressy Street in Bridgeton, officially opened by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in 2015.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101.
