Woodside Library is Category B Listed and recognised as the first and grandest of Glasgow's Carnegie Libraries, designed in the Edwardian Baroque style by James Robert Rhind. The library's exterior including roof, balustrade, railings and entrance area have been repaired. Redecoration of interior features has highlighted the beautiful columns, cornicing and doomed ceiling.
