What's on at Cardonald Library


Free Entry

Cardonald Library has been closed temporarily to allow us to carry out further investigation into the presence of RAAC in the building. A review of the plans shows RAAC was used at Cardonald Library. We have recently received the results of a structural survey which confirms that RAAC is present in the building and is high risk. Glasgow Life is reviewing these findings to determine next steps. 

Your nearest alternative libraries are at Pollok, Ibrox and Pollokshaws.

Glasgow Life apologises for any inconvenience this causes.
