At our August board of trustees meeting, board members officially approved the purchase of 5.7 acres of property at the former John Strange Elementary School, located on 62nd Street near Olney Street for construction of a new Glendale Branch. This move will make the location more accessible for patrons, most importantly by getting the library out of the Glendale Shopping Center and into its own standalone building.
The Library is working with krM Architecture+ to design and build the new facility, and we are planning various ways to get input about the services and priorities that mean the most to Glendale patrons and the surrounding community. Thank you to everyone who attended our first online public input meeting - below are some ways you can still participate:
We are excited that this project will provide a new space to better serve you. The new facility is expected to be approximately 25,000 square feet, with construction beginning in the fall of 2021 and project completion by the end of 2022.
