Room for Reading is an opportunity to make use of our unique library on the first Thursday of every month. Designed by artist Andrew Miller and filled with an expansive collection of art books, magazines and periodicals, the library is available for reference and research from lunchtime until late, with tea and coffee provided.

Not sure what to read? Books are suggested every month in conjunction with our exhibitions and projects. This month we are featuring publications about and selected by Janice Kerbel in conjunction with her recent project 'Sink', which took place on Friday 3 August at The Western Baths Club, Glasgow.

Publications include:

'Haunts of the Black Masseur: The Swimmer as Hero' Charles Sprawson, 1992
'LIVE' Janice Kerbel, 2018
'Deadstar' Janice Kerbel, 2006
'A History of Synchronised Swimming' Synthia Syndor, 2014
'The Springboard in the Pond: An Intimate History of the Swimming Pool' Thomas A. P. van Leeuwen, 1998

Can't make it this month? The next Room for Reading will be Thursday 4 October 2018.
