Save with Jamie aims to help low income families cook healthy food that won't break the bank.
And, with support from the charity, The Reading Agency, the famous chef's recipes will be available in the 32 libraries across the city, as well as the Mitchell.
Jamie said: "We know from the fabulous work that libraries do every day that everyone deserves a chance to learn basic skills that can improve everyday lives.
"Reading and cooking are two of those skills for sure.
"I will admit I've been a late developer with the first, but I can definitely help with the second."
The chef hit headlines this week with claims that low income families waste money on ready meals and that foreign staff work harder than the British.
His controversial comments came just 24 hours after he sparked anger by saying that families trapped in "modern-day poverty" forked out on giant televisions instead of healthy food.
Dad-of-four Jamie says his book will help families and communities under financial pressure to shop smart, cook clever, eat well and waste less.
Councillor Archie Graham, chairman of Glasgow Life, said: "Having access to free books and reading experiences is vitally important, especially when people are under financial pressure and Glasgow Libraries are playing their part in these hard times.
"Jamie's mission to make good food accessible to all drives right at the heart of the role that libraries play to make information and advice accessible to all - and there are many people in our community who will benefit from Save with Jamie."
