Heroes Branch Library Design Phase (in development)


Western Area Branch Library Site Feasibility Study

Department staff and members of the Library Advisory Board presented the findings and recommendations of the Western Area Branch Library Site Feasibility Study, along with final conceptual plans and a review of public input for two proposed sites evaluated for the future construction of a new branch library in western Glendale during a special Council workshop on April 5, 2016.

Following the presentation and discussion, City Council directed staff to move forward to the next phase of project development and initiate the formal design process for a new 7500 sq. ft. library facility on the grounds of Heroes Regional Park off 83rd Avenue and Bethany Home Road and eliminate the Glendale 11 Media Center site option from further consideration.
