The Mitchell Library at Charing Cross is one of the largest public reference libraries in Europe. This beautiful Edwardian Baroque building with its distinctive copper dome has been an iconic Glasgow landmark since it opened in 1911. Within, it houses a vast collection of books and periodicals as well as maps, photographs and newspapers. It's also home to the Mitchell Theatre, a beautiful exhibition hall, and the Herald café bar, whose menu is cleverly laid out like a newspaper.

Additionally, The Mitchell Library is used for a variety of events such as book groups, computer classes, exhibitions and family history workshops, whilst also being the host venue for Glasgow's literary festival, Aye Write! – where the licensed café and pop-up book shop make it the perfect self-contained festival venue.
