Glasgow Life has confirmed the reopening date for the newly restored Elder Park Library.

The popular library, now known as Elder Park Library and Community Hub, will reopen on Monday 24 June 2024 following a £4 million upgrade.

In partnership with Elderpark Housing Association, Elder Park Library and Community Hub has undergone significant work to improve the building so that it best meets the needs of the local community.

The upgrades include a full interior and exterior refurbishment which provides improved library and community spaces, a new community kitchen and more bookable areas for people to use. These are supported by additional library toilets and improved baby changing facilities.

The work will also ensure the A-listed building - protected by Historic Environment Scotland because of its architectural and historic interest - is more accessible and sustainable.

The revamped Elder Park Library and Community Hub has also improved the building's energy performance. The new features include more natural ventilation, energy-efficient boilers, new electrical wiring and lighting, and a weather station.

All of the new additions connect to a building management system which monitors temperature and ventilation. The building also has new fire safety and security systems. These installations will not only greatly reduce its carbon footprint, but also improve the overall visitor experience and safety measures.

Elder Park Library and Community Hub will be open six days a week on the following days:

Monday (1.00pm-8.00pm)

Tuesday (10.00am-5.00pm)

Wednesday (10.00am-5.00pm)

Thursday (10.00am-5.00pm)

Friday (10.00am-5.00pm)

Saturday (10.00am-5.00pm)

Sunday (closed)
