The Glendale Central Library is renovating its Children’s Library and Teen Area to support a more flexible and collaborative learning environment. The 7,800SF Children’s Library includes a new central activity area, interactive learning stations, reading nooks, and a new early children’s section to support STEAM activities. Additionally, the wall between the main hall and the children’s library, which is currently closed off, has been opened by mean of an all-glass wall to allow natural light to flood the space.
In addition to the Children’s Library, the renovation of the 2,200SF Teen Area will include two glass-enclosed collaboration rooms, a fully outfitted recording studio, and a large video wall. This space will stay open to allow for flexible furniture arrangements that support the collaborative learning environment the City wants to foster.
