Success at the Scottish Civic Trust Awards
We’re delighted that the Glasgow Women’s library refurbishment was ‘Highly Commended’ in the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards. The Awards aim to identify projects or buildings that have had a positive impact on the local community, each project is nominated and evaluated by local people.
This year’s judges commented “The new library is significant on both a local and national level. Locally, it has breathed new life intothe old public library with a bold but sensitive design that has drawn its vision from the area’s community with a sense of responsibility and respect. Nationally, it celebrates the lives, histories and achievements of Scotland’s women through the ages. The library is welcoming, accessible and open to all, men and women. The library’s facilities and rich programme of activities are multi-faceted and it has become much more than simply a place of books; it is a vibrant and supportive place which has become a focal point in the lives of many in the community. We strongly recommend a visit.”
