Clydebank Library

Located on the south side of Dumbarton Road in the town centre, close to the Town Hall, the Clydebank Library is the principal public library for SE West Dunbartonshire. Opened in 1913 and substantially funded by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie (1835 - 1919), it has a fine classical facade comprising seven bays and grand columns, all constructed in Hunterston sandstone. The interior was remodelled 1945-50 and extensively refurbished 1967-69.

The library holds important archives relating to the Clydebank area, together with material relating to local history. There is also a regular programme of exhibitions.
