  • Save Maryhill Library

    saveMaryhill Library

    Glasgow Life have stated they have no plans to reopen Maryhill Library. They have made the wrong decision.

    Maryhill Library must reopen at its current location. Glasgow Life must urgently review their position and bring forward plans for re-opening our library as soon as possible.

    This is an essential service for the people of Maryhill. Any talk of a new community hub cannot be used as a reason to keep Maryhill Library closed.

    Sign the petition below and back the campaign to have Maryhill Library reopened.

    Sign the petition here and receive updates on this campaign.

    Over the past year with the coronavirus crisis, the pressure on young carers has been even greater than normal . As today is Young Carers Day and I’d like to take the opportunity to praise Scotland’s young carers and encourage them to take advantage of the Young Carer Package and Young Carers Grant – the first of its kind in the UK.
