More from this place

The Watt Library was founded in 1839 to serve as a library and monument to Greenock's most famous son, James Watt.

The building was designed by Sir Edward Blore ( 1787-1879) and comprised of the central portion of the current design, with the wings being added later in 1849 by public subscription.

Today the Watt Library is part of Inverclyde Libraries Service under Inverclyde Council. The Library now specialises in local history and is a valuable resource for anyone wishing to research local history.
