A brand new library for the residents of Bridgeton in an iconic, newly refurbished building. Offering a wide range of services and activities in unique surroundings.

Opened in 2012, Bridgeton Library on Orr Street in the former Olympia Building is free for you to enjoy.

At Bridgeton Library, you can: 

• Relax and enjoy an old TV show or film in our BFI Mediatheque. 

• Take part in kids’ arts and crafts in our Gruffalo themed children’s area

• Talk about your Football Memories with our Dementia Friendly group, or have a chat at our Bereavement and Blether coffee mornings

With thousands of books and a programme of weekly classes and events, Bridgeton Library has something for everyone.

Don’t forget you can access all 33 Glasgow Libraries and our 24/7 online library with your Glasgow Libraries membership card.
