Art, Music & Beyond!
In the midst of the City of Glendale's verdant Brand Park sits Brand Library & Art Center, the art and music section of the Library, Arts & Culture Department. This cultural resource serves an ever-widening public interested in the arts, and is a unique destination for art, music and beyond.
Facilities at Brand Library & Art Center include an Art and Music Library, Art Galleries and Recital Hall. Activities in the Center's Art Studios are programmed by the Community Services and Parks Department.
Brand Library is staffed by subject specialist librarians and has over 110,000 items, including books, scores, DVDs, CDs, LPs, and magazines.
Brand Library & Art Center sponsors many events that are free and open to the public including art exhibitions, concerts, art & music lectures, dance events, films, computer classes, children's events and library tours.
In 1956 Brand Library & Art Center opened to the public in Miradero, the beautiful home of Glendale pioneer Leslie C. Brand, and has been serving music and art lovers from across Southern California ever since.
