Glendale’s own Brand Library & Art Center was recently honored by Time Out Los Angeles with the 2016 “Love Los Angeles” Award. Nearly 7,800 readers voted for their favorite restaurants, bars, cafes, and local culture hotspots in LA. The Brand Library & Art Center received the award in recognition of its artistic, musical, and cultural contributions to the Glendale community.
Brand Library & Art Center has been a cornerstone for the arts in Southern California since 1956. This unique public library focuses on visual arts and music and provides free services and programs for a diverse community, including a collection of over 110,000 items, subject specialist librarians, exhibitions, concerts, dance performances, films, and craft programs for children and adults.
