Glasgow Women’s Library: a treasure trove that shows how far feminism has come

Today, with more than 20,000 books and 300,000 archival items, all donated, the GWL has expanded to take on 22 paid staff alongside about 100 volunteers, with guaranteed funding from Creative Scotland for the next two years.

We can only dream of The Women’s Library in Newtown having 22 paid staff! At present we are struggling along with about 30 part-time volunteers. Please contact us at twlnewtown@gmail.com if you are able to lend a hand.
