Update: Open now

The Library Café is located on the ground floor of the main Library at George Square, in the heart of the University's central area making it easily accessible to everyone throughout the year.

The Library Café is already an integral part of the main library building. Its a bright, vibrant space with something for everyone. Come along and relax and have a coffee in our huge curvy sofas, dine at the funky tables and chairs or continue working at one of the many flat screen PC's.

There is a wide variety of food on offer, all fresh and made to order. This includes baked potatoes, panini, baguettes, salads, bagels, toasties, home made soup and nachos. If you fancy something a little naughty there are danish pastries, muffins, cookies and large slices of cake. We also serve great coffee, delicious smoothies and some chilled frappés to keep you cool.
