GLASGOW Life has revealed the opening dates for five libraries that had previously been at risk of closure.

Whiteinch, Maryhill, The Couper Institute and GoMA libraries will all re-open on Monday January 24. Barmulloch Library will re-open on January 31 after adaptations are made following its use as a vaccination centre.

The re-opening has been made possible after funding from the Scottish Government's Public Library Covid Recovery Fund, administered by the Scottish Library and Information Council.

Campaigns to save the libraries were launched after it was feared they would close for good.

Last week, the Glasgow Times reported that there had been no date agreed to re-open the venues. 

Council leader Susan Aitken said: “We have always understood the value of libraries to their communities which is why we have been working towards reopening all libraries as soon as we were able to do so - and that is reflected in the financial guarantee the council extended to Glasgow Life to ensure more of these venues were able to open sooner, after being closed by the pandemic.

“The city made a strong case for the additional funding that means every library now has a reopening date.

"While we must not forget that Maryhill and Whiteinch libraries both still need substantial capital investment for the future; I am looking forward to all of Glasgow’s libraries being able to welcome people back through their doors.”
