In this special year when Glasgow is the host city for the XX Commonwealth Games, Glasgow Libraries invite you to our new exhibition in the Main Hall at the Mitchell Library. The exhibition, Scotland and the Commonwealth– 400 Years in the Making, forms part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme.
In earlier centuries Scotland made a unique contribution to the Commonwealth with the outpouring of ideas, expertise and its population to every corner of the globe. Visitors, travellers and immigrants to Scotland have in turn enriched the nation.
The exhibition looks at early trade, slavery, missionaries, industry and emigration through to the modern links between Scotland with the Commonwealth.
Join us soon at the Mitchell Library for a journey into the past and find out how it continues to shape Scotland today.
