Behind the scenes tour of The Mitchell Library

A behind the scenes tour of one of Glasgow's most impressive buildings. 

Tour starts at 2.30, but if we meet around the reception area at the Granville Street entrance please about 2.20 to get ready. 

I've taken all of their 10 places that they offered to the public. It would be good to fill it with just the group rather than me returning places to the Mitchell.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the Mitchell today. To think there are literally millions of books store there! Nice to catch up with some familiar faces and meet new ones too. Michael, as always, thank you for organising.

    Thanks to all who came along. Interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes. (I would have liked to have spoken more to new members, but hopefully we'll have another chance in the future.)

    I've changed my attendance as I might not be free from an earlier meeting to get to the Mitchell in time. Hopefully someone on the wait list will be able to take up the place.

      Not letting me or anyone else down. If people can't go, for whatever reason, it cannot be helped. Hope you are ok.

    Waiting list sorted.

  • Rosemary D.

    I'd like to join the wait list too please.

    November 13

    • Michael

      Noted. I've written to admin to ask why members can't create or join a waiting list. Waiting for a reply.

      November 13

  • Tara

    Can I join the waitlist? It just shows the meetup as full, with no option to RSVP. Thanks

    November 13

    • Michael

      The tours are around once a month. I'll look out for a future one, should anyone miss this.

      November 13

    • Michael

      I checked the settings and there's always been a box to tick 'create a waiting list'. It's not there now. Maybe the site owners, in their wisdom, have removed it for some reason'.

      November 13

  • Rosie S.

    Sorry Michael I can't see how to join waitlist.

    November 12

    • Michael

      Think it should work if you rsvp yes? Then you'll be added to it.

      November 12

  • Rosie S.

    Hi can I join the waiting list thanks Michael .

    November 12

    • Michael

      Yes, of course. Their limit is 10 but I'll check if they can take 11.

      November 12

    • Michael

      Hi Rosie, if you join the waiting list yourself please, so you are at the top of the list should someone from the yes group was no longer able to go. (If I were to to do it manually myself, I'd need to add you to the yes list then change it to the waiting list, so you'd get different emails and it'll save confusion.)
