Can you feel the weather changing? That means it's almost October and for us, that's great because in October we celebrate National Friends of the Library week! Yes, we actually have our very own national week of celebration! We have some very special events planned and we hope you will join us. Most notably, our premiere membership event occurs October 18 at the Glendale Main Library. We hope you will join us for a welcoming message from Char Sharp, President of the Friends and a tour led by Chief Librarian Michael Beck. See below for more details and we hope to see you there!

And the chill in the air is also tells us that the Fabulous Fall Book sale is near! It is this Saturday, September 24th at the Foothills Branch Library. More details here.
