On the first Saturday in February, thousands of libraries across the world celebrate Take Your Child to the Library Day by offering free, fun, fabulous activities for families.

About Libraries in Glasgow:
“The original network of branch libraries was created during 1901 – 1907. These were Gorbals, Kingston, Anderston, Woodside, Maryhill, Dennistoun, Springburn, Parkhead, Bridgeton, Hutchesontown, Govanhill & Crosshill, Pollokshields and Townhead. Kinning Park joined in 1905.

Most have survived. Dennistoun, Govanhill, Maryhill, Parkhead, Pollokshields and Woodside have been used as community libraries. The original buildings for Bridgeton, Hutchesontown, Kingston and Springburn still exist, although they no longer form part of the city’s library system. Anderston, Kinning Park and Townhead were demolished.”
