What's Happening

Service Changes Beginning July 1, 2019

Beginning July 1, 2019, and in keeping with leading library practices, fines for children’s and teen materials will be eliminated at all Library, Arts & Culture locations. Over the last ten years, libraries across the U.S. have been eliminating fines for children’s materials as it has often functioned as a barrier to children’s literacy. Children and parents will still be expected to bring their library materials back in a timely manner and will be charged replacement costs for the items that are not returned. Most library materials renew automatically three times; materials that are reserved by other borrowers do not automatically renew.

In addition, service hours at four Glendale Library, Arts & Culture locations will change beginning on Saturday, July 1, 2019. The new service hours will be as follows:
