In August 2020, the City of Glendale Common Council voted to give notice to leave the North Shore Library in 2023. After more than a year of discussion, Glendale made the decision to leave the joint library and move forward with a plan to provide library service that will better meet the needs of its residents.
In the spring of 2021, the City conducted an on-line survey and reviewed results. At that time, the option for the North Shore Library to have a new facility in Bayside was not available. With the new information, it is important to receive input from Glendale residents.
