Events and Activities

Leisure and Lifestyle at The Mitchell Library.


The Mitchell Library will reopen on Tuesday 15 December. We will be operating reduced opening hours and a limited service at this time.

You may access the Granville Street ground floor area to borrow or return books. While you won’t need to book ahead for this, numbers will be limited in the area due to physical distancing, so you may need to queue for a short time.

For further information, please read our Frequently Asked Questions.

Situated on the ground floor, Leisure and Lifestyle is the the community library in the Mitchell. It offers all the services you would expect – fiction for all ages, non-fiction and material in other languages including Urdu, Gaelic and Chinese.

We have a great classic, cult and contemporary collection and are a gateway into the wider non-fiction collection in the Mitchell.

We also have a Macmillan drop in service, PCs and offer a range of activities.
