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 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:

Casa Verdugo Library, 1151 North Brand Boulevard, Glendale CA 91202 – 818-548-2051
