Pardon Our Dust

As we create a better Library for you! 

The Glendora Public Library will be upgrading and repairing parts of the Library this fall.  The main floor of the Library will remain open during regular operating hours during this time.  We are working closely with the City of Glendora Public Works Department and contractors to provide the most seamless experience possible.

Bidwell Forum is scheduled to be unavailable from October 30-November 11, 2017 for upgrades to the obsolete audio and video equipment.  The upgrades will allow for user-friendly presentations for community meetings and events.  Upgrades include:

  • Dual 80” LED 1080p displays for simultaneous viewing of multiple sources.
  • Wireless HD audio and video source connectivity will allow for easy user-friendly connection from a smart phone, laptop, or tablet directly to the system.
  • Upgraded video projector and screen will give brighter clearer image projection for PowerPoint presentations.
  • Upgraded sound through high quality in-ceiling and outdoor speakers and high quality amps.
  • Audio/video switching and processing via digital processing unit will allow for custom equalizer settings for optimal sound, control power output to speakers, manage source inputs to the multiple displays, etc.
  • Installation of 4K Wifi Blu-ray Disc Player.
  • Upgraded wireless handheld and lapel microphones for quality sound.
  • CCTV camera and recording device.


The Library Plaza will be unavailable intermittently from October 16-December, 2017 for installation of a new waterproof coating system to alleviate leaks into the Library. 

UPDATE: The contractor is scheduled to apply the sealant between Monday, Nov. 6 and Wed, Nov. 22. Crack repairs will precede the sealant project, but work should not affect the general use of the plaza or the Bidwell Forum. 

Please check back for further updates.  For questions, please feel free to contact the Library at (626) 852-4891.  The Library is located at 140 S. Glendora Ave., Glendora, CA 91741.
