Reducing loneliness and isolation
We’re committed to improving the mental and physical wellbeing of local communities. Our programmes give people a chance to get out and meet new people.
If you just want to be around other people the library is absolutely somewhere you can do that safely without judgement. I think people will walk out of here feeling a bit better.
Glasgow Life Libraries
Our libraries are so much more than books; they’re safe spaces where people of all ages can come to read, learn, and discover. They’re also a place where the digitally excluded can get online and access a range of resources. The programmes we deliver add value to people's lives through learning.Find out more
