Searching the Catalog

Search for books, movies, music, video games, and more in the Glendale Public Library's online catalog. If you're on a mobile device, you might want to use our app instead; scroll down to "Using the Glendale Public Library App" for more information.

You can search the catalog from every page on this website.  Just use the search box located in the upper right-hand corner of the page.  Make sure the radio button for "Search the Catalog" is selected.
