The new Glendale Branch Library is scheduled to open in the first quarter, 2024. It will be located at 3660 East 62nd Street at the corner of 62nd and Olney, the site of the former John Strange Elementary School.
Some exciting features of the new building:
The Broad Ripple community has enjoyed library service at various sites since 1930. The first stand-alone library opened in 1949 adjacent to School No. 80 and continued at that location until a larger branch opened in Broad Ripple Park in 1986. Facing a need for continued growth, the current Glendale Branch was constructed in 2000 and became the country’s first full-service library in a major shopping mall.
