Woodside Library Doors Open Day 2015

A successful application was made by Woodside Community Council's Heritage Group for Woodside Library to be part of Doors Open Day. 

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.

Performance by Windsor Music Group as part of Doors Open Day

Through a partnership with Glasgow Life and staff from Woodside Library, a programme of events was provided by Woodside Community Council on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September. This included talks, heritage walk, music performance and heritage displays. I have given assistance with various issues as part of planning the programme.

There is an ongoing commitment to invest in the facilities and increase the use of Woodside Library. The importance of the libraries has been highlighted by the Carnegie Trust in recent research and support for a national strategy on library development.
