Join The Walking Library on a wander through the green howe (Glasgow). Select a book to share and help create a map of wild nature – sleekit creatures, willow haughs and reedy rivers – on a slow walk from the City Centre to the West End.

The Walking Library brings walking and books together. Join us on a place-aware wander through the wild city, as we carry our library on a slow walk from the forceful flower (Clyde) to the reedy river (Kelvin). Every book has been suggested by someone as a helpful guide to wild nature, which thrives in the urban landscape. On the walk we will look for sleekit creatures at the willow haugh (Sauchiehall), create maps in the wee grove (Partick), and make new place-names that reveal the wild side of the green howe (Glasgow).

The distance of the walk is approximately three miles and the duration is approximately four hours and includes stops. Walkers can leave the walk at any time. The walk will cover urban areas of the city. There will be some hills. As this is an outdoor walking event, please wear suitable clothing and footwear, and in the event of sunshine, wear sunscreen and a hat. Book online, or email
