50 Years of the Library Building

Issued: Tue, 02 Oct 2018 09:13:00 BST

September 30th this year marked the 50th anniversary of the University Library building on Hillhead Street.  To honour the occasion we recently launched a fabulous exhibition celebrating ’50 Years of the Library Building’.   The exhibition, located inside the Library entrance, is open to all and we warmly invite everyone to visit.

As part of a programme of celebratory events, we held a party for students on Friday 28th September.  50th birthday fairy-cakes, and party-hats, were handed out in return for birthday wishes and messages.  A great time was had by all!   You can catch up with the fun, and find out about forthcoming events, by following #UofGLibrary50 and @uofglibrary on social media.   

We would also love University staff, students, alumni and visitors to get in touch to share what they love about the Library, and their favourite Library photographs and memories from the past 50 years, by using #UofGLibrary50 on social media or by visiting www.gla.ac.uk/myglasgow/library/contact/forms/libraryat50/
