I visit Clydebank Library on a very regular basis, I sometimes browse but I always borrow books & regulary put in requests for new books which the staff are happy to help with. I find the staff very helpful and friendly. I also like the lay out of the library ans how well the books are displayed.

Was in to see my Camera Clubs selection of photographs which are shown during August each year - this is a beautiful building and much bigger than what I thought.

Well made up, here is where you can divulge yourself into the chronological history of Clydebank. I personally wanted to see my name in the old editions of the Clydebank Press now known as the Clydebank Post and was allowed to view slides where I found all my personal football memorabillia.
