Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Always a superb place to concentrate and create. The large format art books are to die for and the range of spaces is great.

    Great feminist lending library and educational center in east Glasgow. We are here for several days from Seattle USA and Vancouver British Columbia and a stop here came highly recommended. A bit of a walk in the rain for us but very educational and super friendly staff… just felt great to be in this space….

    The building built in 1879 tells a fascinating story. Originally built by the first wave of Jewish immigrants from Germany , it has been maintained beautifully. By the second wave of Jewish immigrants in 1900 there were almost 9000 Jews in Glasgow mostly from Eastern Europe many on their way to the US .

    The tour was superbly given by a Jewish member of the current congregation and a marvelous lady who had been Lord Mayor of Glasgow and who though Catholic donates her time and expertise to tell the story of Jewish migration in Scotland also demonstrates Scottish tolerance. in the best of all possible ways.

    I went to Bridgeton library to use the computer as mine had broken. The lay out of the library is decent and I was glad that one of the workers told someone to be quiet when they were talking as I was trying to concentrate . However, the staff then proceeded to chat and laugh amongst themselves very loudly which I found hypocritical and very frustrating as I couldn’t focus on my work. This happened each time i visited the library and the lady behind the desk was quite rude to me. I won’t be back despite it being my local library, as I’ve been put off.
