As one of three libraries in Glendale, AZ, the Foothills Branch Library is an epicenter for the general public to educate themselves at no cost.

The library has a unique layout for youth and families, with many features to include a children's library, two study rooms, and a drive-thru service for the needs of the disabled. It is a vital component to our cities infrastructure.

Furthermore, it reinforces our family values and encourages social stratification in our community. It's presence devalues discrimination against minorities, disabled, and the poverty-stricken.

Most importantly, the City of Glendale needs to keep the library at its current location. (19055 N. 57th Avenue, 85308). It provides our community with the ability to keep our residents engaged with the neighboring college not to mention, their students with the community.

Regardless of Midwestern University’s financial incentives, we must stand against diminishing our already sparse public facilities. It makes little sense to project a financial incentive on one of the public’s more reputable libraries. Even recent calculations dictate more loss than gain.

Our Mayor is awaiting recommendations from the Library Advisory Board, the Parks and Recreation Commission, and the Arts Commission. We need them to see we need this library.

Please visit this causes Facebook page, Save the Glendale Foothills Library and please provide them feedback. They will also provide you with answers to any questions.

    I am absolutely against the "relocation" of the Glendale Foothills library. The library is one of the main reasons I live in Glendale and the new proposal shortchanges the library, the rec center, and the people of Glendale.

    I do not want to see the downsizing of Foothills Library. I also do not want to loose the space at the Aquatics Center. My wife and I use both, this does not present a positive change in our opinion.
