A free event will be held this Saturday, July 11, from 12.30pm through until 4pm.
The heritage centre open day will allow people to browse the library’s unique archives of old photos and maps, as well as topic folders on old shops, cinemas and local industries.
Locals interested in more can try out the Scottish census for free on ancestry.com, too.
Tea and coffee will be provided.
There will also be a Historic Library Tour on Saturday August 8 from 2pm until 3pm.

Rutherglen Library was built in 1907 and retains some stunning Edwardian features, and the day lets people learn more about the Carnegie Library and hear ghostly tales from around the building, as well as seeing some rooms not usually open to the public.
Tickets are available from the library main desk.
