  • Preservation Alert: Glendale Central Library‏

    Posted Under: General Area, Quality of Life, In My Neighborhood  |  April 3, 2013 8:47 AM  |  276 views  |  1 comment
     


     

    The Glendale Historical Society (TGHS) encourages you to attend a Community Meeting on Monday, April 8, 2013, 6:00-7:30 p.m., to learn more about and share your thoughts on the design by Gruen Associates for the City's proposed renovations to the Glendale Central Library. The meeting will be held in the Central Library Auditorium located at 222 East Harvard Street. 

     

    Built in 1973, the Central Library was designed by the noted architectural firm Welton Beckett & Associates. The building is a significant and relatively rare example of the Brutalist modern style, especially in Glendale. While TGHS has not yet taken a formal position, we want to ensure that any alteration is consistent with the Secretary of the Interior's standards for historic preservation and does not impact the building's architectural integrity and eligibility for listing on the Glendale and California Register of Historic Resources, and possibly the National Register of Historic Places.

     

    Central Library visitors receive three hours of FREE parking across the street at The Market Place parking structure with validation at the loan desk.

  • Glendale Historic Society - The Great Crescenta Valley Flood

    Art Cobery Discusses

    The Great Crescenta Valley Flood

    New Year's Day 1934

    Wednesday, February 20, 7:00 p.m.

    Central Library Auditorium

    222 East Harvard Street

          
     

    Join us when Art Cobery discusses his new book The Great Crescenta Valley Flood -- New Year's Day 1934 on Wednesday, February 20 at 7:00 p.m. at Glendale's Central Library. There is no cost to attend this presentation.

     

    As Crescenta Valley residents gathered to ring in the 1934 New Year, a cloudburst broke over Southern California's San Gabriel Mountains, unleashing a deluge on mountainsides denuded by recent fires. A roaring wall of rocks, mud and water crashed down the canyons, uprooting trees, tossing boulders and automobiles like toys and carving a path of destruction.

     

    Using painstaking research and heart-rending firsthand accounts, historian Art Cobery paints a picture of survival and redemption in the face of natural disaster, including the heroic efforts of eleven-year-old Marcie Warfield to save her father and younger brother, the devastating debris flow that claimed the lives of refugees and aid workers at the American Legion Hall and the selfless acts of neighbors caught in the storm of events.

     

    Art Cobery taught United States history at Burbank High School for over three decades. He retired in 1989. Prior to becoming a founding member of the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley, he devoted his energies to preserving the Crescenta Valley Ledger on microfilm. While engaged in this endeavor, he became fascinated by the paper's forgotten stories relating to the Crescenta Valley Flood of 1934.

     

    Note: Visitors to the Central Library receive 3 hours free parking across the street at The Market Place parking structure with validation at the loan desk. 

     

    This event is sponsored by the Glendale Public Library, Arts & Culture Dept., The Glendale Historical Society, the
    Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley, and the Friends of the Glendale Public Library.
