Top Three Libraries
There are many places to sit and enjoy a good book, but there are none more relaxing than the peacefulness of a library. In this post, we give you the top three libraries that Ringwood have chosen to enjoy a good Ringwood book in!
The Mitchell Library
Located at Charing Cross, the Mitchell Library is one of Glasgow’s most familiar yet breath-taking buildings. With its marble staircases and stained glass windows, this particularly iconic building feels less like you’re walking into a library, and more like the elegant recreation of a classy 1920s building. With over two million books to boast of, as well as 13 individual reading rooms, the Mitchell Library is a perfect place to get lost in the pages of a Ringwood book.
The Gallery of Modern Art Library
Standing at Royal Exchange Square, the library within the Gallery of Modern Art is a relaxing space to enjoy a good book, with a variety of friendly staff on hand to help. With it being situated right in the heart of the city, this library is a perfect place to wind down after a day full of sight-seeing, shopping or – less glamorously – working! Hidden away from the hustle and bustle in the basement of the gallery, it is the optimum location to settle down on a comfortable chair and enjoy a good book… the café full of tea and tempting treats certainly adds to the appeal!
Within Glasgow’s redeveloped Olympia Cinema is where someone will uncover this particular library. Visitors will find a warm and welcoming space with zoned areas, including Scotland’s first ever BFI Mediatheque, allowing them to make new film discoveries as well as indulge in old favourites. Alongside the aisles of books, an eager visitor will also find hundreds of curated collections, all with a focus on Scottish film and TV. The bright and friendly space of the library makes it the perfect place to chill with a Ringwood book and read till your heart’s content – which, for us bookworms, is never!
