Pollokshields Library holds the Glasgow Libraries record for the highest number of children taking part in the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge in each of our 33 libraries. Last year a whopping 293 young people aged 0-12 took part in the Challenge.

Pollokshields Library is one of six Glasgow Libraries built thanks to Andrew Carnegie’s donation to the city of Glasgow.
