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:

This is a hugely enjoyable ghost story, atmospheric and chilling. It is a story about an attempt in 1935 by five Englishmen to climb Kangchenjunga, a Himalyan mountain more deadly than Everest. A rucksack belonging to a dead mountaineer appears to follow them. Is it an optical illusion? Is someone menacing the group? The ice ‘creaking and groaning’ are vividly described. This is a ghost story to chill and thrill, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Dark Matter by the same author is also excellent.

The library was gifted to Govan by Mrs Isabella Elder and opened by Andrew Carnegie in 1903.
Mrs Elder donated £10,000 to meet the cost of building, insisting that the library must open on Sundays.
