Do you need help:
  • fixing a car?
  • writing a résumé?
  • researching your family tree?
  • doing your homework? 
  • learning a language?
We've got a database for that! In fact, we have a lot of them, offering everything from genealogical research to detailed automotive repair schematics. 

Library databases are online resources, usually subscription-based, featuring quality content that you can trust. They are accessible 24/7 with your valid Glendale Public Library card number and PIN. Your PIN is the last four numbers of your phone number, unless you requested a different four-digit number when you received your card.

Don't have a library card? Get an eCard from home! After submitting this application form, you will receive a response containing your new eCard number and PIN within two business days. 

Some library databases may only work properly in Google Chrome.  

What is a database?

A database is an electronic collection containing information. A library database can include text articles, books, videos, music, citations, abstracts of articles or chapters in books. Think of a database as a fact-checked, more organized internet!
