About Us

The Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Trust (“the Trust”) was created in 2020 through the merger of Friends of the Glendale Public Library and The Glendale Library Foundation. The Trust maintains the commitment of its two founding organizations to provide support for the Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department of the City of Glendale. Fundraising, special events, and other volunteer efforts are designed to enhance the programs and resources offered to the public at Glendale Central Library, six neighborhood branches, and the Brand Library & Art Center.


In 1995, a group of library lovers created the Friends of the Glendale Public Library to encourage and promote volunteer activities and fundraising for the library needs, including library services, collections and programs.

In 2017, thanks to a generous gift by Robert Seiden, the Glendale Library Foundation was born. The Foundation existed to raise funds for long-term support of Glendale Library, Arts & Culture.
