After consultation with more than 3,000 people, 2015 saw the publication of the Vision for Glasgow Libraries.

Our response to the national decline in traditional users of library services, changing technologies, the emerging Scottish National Library Strategy and a need for vibrant community focal points. A comprehensive action plan implementing the strategy was developed around 6 vision themes encompassing all aspects of modernising the service, supporting the development of an innovative library service to meet current and future challenges. These are Digital, Space, Information, Reading, the Mitchell Library and School Libraries.

Achievements from the action plan to date have included the roll out of WiFi to all libraries, the introduction of self-service at libraries across the city, a new responsive design to our online catalogue and website, co-location of essential services within libraries such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, development of an information strategy and further development of the health partnership with Macmillan.
