Parkhead Hub 

In September 2019 Glasgow City Council approved £2.5million in funding to relocate Parkhead Library from the existing the Grade B-listed building to the proposed East End Health and Social Care Partnership Hub (HSCP) building.

The newly located library will continue to provide adult and children's library sections, also hosting services from Clyde Gateway, Macmillan, Jobs and Business Glasgow, and Citizens Advice among others.

A number of advantages will be delivered by locating the library in the proposed hub, including offering the public a 'one-stop shop' for services from Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life and the HSCP, with the opportunity for local people to benefit in health, productivity and wellbeing terms.

Issues around accessibility in the current building would also be addressed in the new hub and will also feature a Hub Café.
