Glasgow Life to reopen and extend hours in 10 more venues in coming weeks

Glasgow Life has today (Friday 26 August) announced it will reopen more of its cultural and sporting venues and extend opening hours over the next four weeks.

On Monday (29 August), six of Glasgow Life’s libraries will extend current opening hours, allowing wider access for local communities. Anniesland, Dennistoun, Hillhead, Knightswood, Parkhead and Pollok Libraries will introduce extended hours, seeing them return to their original opening hours.

Meanwhile, Govanhill Library will reopen in September following the completion of restoration and repair works. For more information on library locations and opening hours, visit

As announced last week, Glasgow Club facilities Crownpoint and Donald Dewar will reopen on Monday 5 September with gym and fitness class opportunities for current and new Glasgow Club members. To download the Glasgow Club app and book fitness classes, or to see gym opening times, visit

After a commitment earlier in the year to reopen St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, the charity will open the museum's doors on Wednesday 14 September, allowing the people of Glasgow and visitors to the city the opportunity to visit this historic and culturally-important venue for the first time in more than two years. No advance booking will be required, and full opening hours will be in place.

Bailie Annette Christie, Chair of Glasgow Life, said: “We’re delighted to confirm the reopening and extended opening hours for these 10 venues across the city. Glasgow Life is a charity with the mental and physical wellbeing of citizens at its heart, and we want all those living in and visiting Glasgow to have the opportunity to engage with our services and make the most of this incredible city, which is known across the world for its cultural and sporting reputation.

“Reopening and increasing access to these venues will promote inclusion, happiness and health, providing many free opportunities to improve overall wellbeing while also supporting the city’s visitor economy.”
