Help Brainstorm for a Better Library!

Let’s get together to brainstorm how to make our library even better!

Come share your ideas for programming and making the most of our little gem of a library, the Chevy Chase branch. The directing librarian and volunteers will attend.

We want to hear from YOU! Sat., Feb. 11 @ 2 p.m., 3301 E. Chevy Chase Dr., Glendale 91206, 818-548-2046

These great ideas came from the Oct. 26, 2016, brainstorming session:

  • a book club for grown-ups
  • a regular storytime for kids
  • a holiday neighborhood party
  • chamber concerts
  • adding Pilates or other fitness classes
  • through Glendale Community Services & Parks (yoga is already offered Saturday mornings 9-10)
  • asking the city to open at least one other day per week (library is currently open Wed., 2-8 p.m. and Sat., 12-5 p.m.).
  • To deal with the limited hours, we will attempt to get a sign for outside the library visible to drivers from both directions that publicizes the library’s hours, so people can easily see when it is open.
  • We also will ask the city if we can add play equipment, such as a sandbox, or safe, low-tech toys for kids, maybe a picnic table or more seating to make it an even more inviting gathering place.
Stay tuned for more updates, and feel free to add more ideas here to keep the conversation going, or let us know how you would like to help.

Some regular programs at the library currently include:

  • Art Cart and Lego Club – after school on Wednesdays
  • Jewel City Knitters (knit and crochet with others for charity) Second Saturday of the month 2-5 p.m.
  • Poetry and Prose for Adults – taught by Jane Hancock on Wednesdays
  • NEW:  Chevy Chase Library Book Club – First meeting, Wed, Feb. 8, 6:30 p.m. – Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
