What's Happening

The Central Library renovation is coming into its home stretch, completing major construction elements in time for our Spring 2017 Grand Re-opening.  We “closed the curtain” at the end of the day on September 1, 2016 so that our construction crews can move into high speed until we are ready for our big reveal. We are exploring options for alternative spaces in the downtown area, however the Central Library building will be closed to the public.  Read More>

Sign-up to receive our events and announcements via email, and take a look at what we offer for your Teens and Children! See a very short video about borrowing one of our eReaders, then ask our staff to show you how to access our Mobile App or download an eBook. The library has a wonderful local history collection that highlights many historical photographs that have been digitized and available online along with other bits of Glendale history. And remember we are open 24/7 at www.myglendalelac.org where you can find information about these and many other events happening at your library.

Use @MyGlendaleLAC to STAY CONNECTED with us on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
