Glendale Branch Rendering

The new Glendale Branch Library is scheduled to open in the Summer of 2023. 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:

  • Maximize access to Library services and collections
  • Improve Library access and visibility
  • Increase access to computers and new technologies
  • Group study rooms and tutoring spaces
  • Community meeting room with a capacity of 100
  • Energy resource conservation - LEEDv4 Silver Certification
  • Drive-up material return
  • 24,800 square feet

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.
