If you've been anywhere near the corner of Glendale and Silver Lake Blvd, no doubt you've seen the progress being made on the new library.  A contemporary design of shiny silver and glass, the building designed by M2A Architects has a split level design and subterranean parking. New Silver Lake Library to be completed this year The designers envision the building as a "Gateway to the Community" and are incorporating the eco-friendly green components that will allow it to earn LEED certification.   No doubt the library will be a great addition to the Silver Lake Neighborhood! If you are up for a book sale, mark your calendar for Saturday, August 1.  You can browse and buy books from 10 am  - 2 pm catty-corner from the future library at the Citybank Community Center. 2450 Glendale Blvd. at Silver Lake Blvd. For those library lovers who haven't checked out the Edendale Branch yet, it can certainly fill the void until the new Silver Lake library is completed. Edendale Library at the border of Silver Lake and Echo Park This nice little library was opened in the fall of 2004 so it's pretty new itself. It is located at the corner of Alvarado and Sunset Blvd right at the dividing line of Silver Lake and Echo Park at 2011 Sunset Blvd. Parking is limited but I've never had a problem finding a spot, or getting lost in a good book once inside.  There are always events taking place there with class for kids, adults and teens. Especially nice is the free Wifi- and you don't need to buy a $5 coffee to use it! I think a lot of Silver Lake residents are looking forward to opening day when they can stroll around the Silver Lake Reservoir, pick up a book or two and the new library and head on home listing to a pre-reserved book on tape!
