“good facilities and vast selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

First visit to this library as I was aware of its reputation. Was staying in one of the local hotels so travel was not a problem. The vast range of books demonstrates why the library is much renowned. The facilities were also of a good standard and it was easy enough wandering the various levels.

“Crackin library in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

What a great building. When inside there is so many floors to visit! Definately take a day to explore all the nooks and crannys. Then when u need to recharge they have a cafe on the ground floor. I loved to look at old glasgow books and pictures of how the city has changed thru the years.

“Beautiful Building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I love the Mitchell and was a regular visitor here in my younger days. There are sometimes good exhibitions on and obviously a fantastic book collection. During book festivals, the library has played host to several talks and for locals there are some book groups that work from the library. For visitors to Glasgow, I'm not sure how user friendly this establishment is. There is quite a strict security, but bags can be checked in at the door. Also some of the interior could be updated, to fit in with the splendor of the building exterior.
