Libraries everywhere are cherished by their communities and Glendale is no different! We need advocates just like you who can help spread the word about library services to all of our residents. We encourage you to learn more about the Glendale Library and help let everyone know just how important libraries are to their communities.
Here are some things you can do today to support the Glendale Public Library:
- Join the Friends of the Library
- Find out who your council member is and write him/her a letter to let them know how important libraries are to you or someone close to you. Here is a list of the City Council Members and their contact information.
- Attend a city council meeting and sign up for public comment. Let the elected officials know how valuable the library is to your neighborhood. As an advocate you not only speak for yourself, but you speak for those who might not be able to speak up for themselves.
- Make a donation to the Friends of the Glendale Public Library. Your donation helps to fund additional programs not covered in the general budget.
- Clean out your bookcase at home and donate used books, videos and CDs to the library. They will be sold at the Library’s book sale and the money helps to fund library programs not covered in the general budget.
- Volunteers are also needed at the Glendale Public Library and volunteer positions exist to help in many different ways. Visit the The Glendale Public Library’s Volunteer Opportunities page for more information.
