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.
