Ready, set, library!

Ready, set, library! National Library Week is April 7–13, 2024, and Glenside Library encourages everyone in the community to visit the library to take part in the festivities and explore all the library has to offer.

Libraries give us a green light to experience something truly special: a place to connect with others, learn new skills, and pursue our passions through book clubs, storytimes, movie nights, crafting classes, lectures, and more. Glenside Library offers a wide array of programs, resources, and services including passport applications, license plate renewals, and quiet study spaces and community rooms.

And libraries play a pivotal role in economic development by providing resources and support for job seekers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. Glenside Library supports our community with services such as 1-on-1 Assistance, Print, Copy, Scan, Fax services, business databases, and careers databases.

No matter where you find yourself on the roadmap through life’s journey—preparing for a new career, launching a business, raising a family, or settling into retirement—Glenside Library offers the resources and support you need and an inclusive and supportive community where you will feel welcome.

So, get ready to explore, become inspired, and connect with others this National Library Week. Glenside Library is there for you, all the way to the finish line.
