Glendale Library Week

Celebrate our Library System

Our library system in Glendale is a trusted community institution, offering the opportunity for everyone to connect with others, learn new skills, and pursue their passions. Our Glendale library system has been enriching lives for many generations.

To celebrate our jewel, Glendale has proclaimed April 7 -13, 2024 as National Library Week, joining other library systems across the nation in recognizing the contributions of our libraries.

Join us as we celebrate our Glendale library system.

National Library Week 2024: Ready, Set, Library!

The theme for National Library Week 2024 (April 7-13) is Ready, Set, Library! National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature and Newbery and Pura Belpré-award winning author Meg Medina will serve as 2024 Honorary Chair.

“I’m thrilled to serve as the honorary chair of National Library Week for 2024! Libraries connect our communities and enrich our lives in ways we may not realize, and one of my greatest pleasures is discovering the unexpected and beautiful things libraries offer. From book groups to lending sports equipment to providing a safe after-school hangout space and so much more, libraries support us wherever we find ourselves on the roadmap through life’s journey. Join me and the American Library Association in celebrating the gift of libraries everywhere and the adventures and opportunities they unlock for us every day. Ready, Set, Library!”
