Feedback For New Glendale Library Branch



May 2, 2012 – SALT LAKE CITY – Calling all residents of the Glendale neighborhood! The Salt Lake City Public Library and Architectural Nexus are launching an intensive design stage for the new Glendale Library Branch, and seek community input at three open houses scheduled in May and June. 

“The Glendale Library Branch will be much more than a place where people can get information and resources,” said Patty Steed, Associate Director for The City Library. “We want to hear from the residents of this diverse and vibrant neighborhood about what they want in the building’s design so it will live up to the dreams and aspirations of the community.” 

Three open houses will be held in May and June to gather community input:

Public Open House 1: The Community Image

Where: Sorenson Unity Center (1383 South 900 West) 

When: Thursday, May 10, 2012 from 6PM-8PM

This community open house will include opportunities to plan and comment on:

·       The size, shape, and placement of the library on the site,

·       The planning and layout of project spaces as they relate to the community's hopes and dreams.

·       Identifying imagery that captures the heart and vision of the Glendale community.
