Pizza and Holiday Caroling at the Chevy Chase Library

Come in from the cold, share some holiday music and take a night off from cooking!  Join your neighbors and friends for a Holiday Caroling & Potluck Wednesday night, Dec. 21, from 6-8 p.m. at the Chevy Chase Library.  The Chevy Chase Estates Association will supply the pizza and hot drinks, and side dishes, salads or desserts are welcome to help balance our potluck.  We'll start with dinner and holiday stories, then serenade our brave firefighters next door with some holiday carols.  Finally, we'll come back to the library for dessert and crafts, or just visiting with  neighbors and friends.  All ages (and singing abilities) are welcome. For those of us with school kids in Glendale Unified, this is the last day of school before winter night, so there won't be any homework, and the kids can sleep in the next day.  So, come join the fun and stock up on those books and DVDs for Winter Break!

A Message Regarding Recent Mail Theft in Chevy Chase Canyon

From Officer Sue Shine of the Glendale Police Dept.:



I have been receiving multiple reports of thefts from mailboxes and we have had some arrests where mail was recovered in possession of the suspects.  Right now, they are occurring up in the Chevy Chase Canyon area and seem to be targeting street mounted boxes in the overnight hours.  Locking boxes are being pried and some mail has been found discarded in cul-de-sacs.  Some people are reporting fraud attempts on their accounts.  As the holidays approach and more felons are released from custody due to the Early Release Program, package deliveries and postal boxes are tempting targets.  Below is the message I sent to the folks being hit by these thieves to provide guidance.  At this time NO THEFTS HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN  GLENOAKS CANYON.  This is a preventative message because it is likely that, unless they are caught, the thieves will move on soon.

What can you do?

  • Check your box or, if you are not at home all day, ask a neighbor to pick it up for you.
  • Never put mail to go out in your box (take it to the post office)
  • If you are home during the day, open the blinds and curtains and look outside to see if anyone walks by.  Call if you see anything unusual!  Not only will this discourage mail theft, but burglars will think twice too.
  • CHECK YOUR STATEMENTS ONLINE IMMEDIATELY.  Make sure no one has gained access to any accounts

Mail theft is a tricky crime to prosecute.  If you know you are a victim, you may report it directly to the Postal Service as theft from the mailbox is a federal crime.  The two ways to do this are to call: 877-876-2455 (select option #5) or online at: U.S. Postal Inspector.

If you are a victim of identity theft, bring whatever documents confirm this to the station or call to have an officer respond to your home (818-548-4841)

Summer Events at Chevy Chase Library

Magic Show for All Ages Saturday, July 9th at 2:30 Come one, come all for a little summertime magic right in the neighborhood.  Kids and adults of all ages welcome.  Thanks to the Chevy Chase Estates Association for sponsoring this fun event so all can enjoy it FREE of charge.

Valentine’s Traveling Nature Class Saturday, Aug. 20th at 3:30 Come see--or in some cases, pet and hold--reptiles, amphibians, insects and more!  This fabulous and FREE show educates and entertains animal-lovers of all ages.

Also, don't forget to sign up for the summer reading program at Chevy Chase Library.  You can pre-order your book selections from throughout the Glendale and Pasadena library systems online at and then ask that they be sent to the Chevy Chase branch.  There's no quicker or greener way to keep up with your reading.  Routing your books to Chevy Chase provides more accurate circulation numbers for our area than routing them to another branch or the Central Library for pickup.  The library uses our branch's relatively low circulation numbers to suggest we're not using the system that much and that we don't need a library here.  So please route your books to Chevy Chase!

The Chevy Chase branch is open to check out books on Wednesdays from 2-8 and Saturdays 12-5. You worked hard to keep it open. Now it's time to enjoy it!!
