SCOTTISH public libraries are the most used in the UK.
A study by the Carnegie Trust and Ipsos Mori found that almost three-quarters of families with young children visited libraries last year.
Glasgow libraries have had a 12.8% increase in book borrowing since 2011, thanks to Scottish Government campaigns such as Play Talk Read and BookBug which encourage young people to use their local libraries.
The libraries have adapted their service to suit the needs of communities through the Vision for Glasgow study in 2015 which asked 3000 library users about how services could be improved.
Librarian, Christine Stewart, believes digital media has played its part in getting young people reading again.
