LATEST INFORMATION: THIS LIBRARY REMAINS CLOSED. PLEASE SEE OUR LATEST INFORMATION PAGE FOR DETAILS OF REOPENED LIBRARIES AND UPDATES ON VENUES REOPENING IN FUTURE. 

Exciting things are happening at Elder Park Library while we are currently closed.

Glasgow Life, Elderpark Housing Association and Glasgow City Council are planning a major refurbishment and upgrade to Elder Park Library. Work will start on site in May 2021.

In November 2020, we carried out a community consultation. The aim was to gather as many views as possible to help us create a library and community hub that meets the future needs of the local community.

We were delighted that 882 people completed our online survey and a summary of the key survey results are available here.

A copy of the full survey results can be viewed online here:

Further updates on our progress will appear on this page and via Glasgow Libraries Facebook and Twitter pages.

Remember that while we are closed you can still access our e-library online, links below:
