Round bookshelf in public library

On Monday, May 11, the city of Glendale reopened the main library, though with limitations.

Access to all library branches was restricted in mid-March in accordance with recommended safety guidance due to COVID-19. Though online e-books, audio books, movies and more have been available, patrons were not permitted inside the library until May  11.

The library hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.

The main library at 5959 W. Brown Street now has a designated area stocked with new titles and popular items.

To provide social distancing, a maximum of 25 guests will be allowed in the library. Staff will also be doing additional cleaning of frequently touched surfaces and all returned material will be quarantined for 72 hours in accordance with safety guidelines.
