Sign and voice your concern.

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.
