When Miradero was constructed around the turn of the 20th century its castle-like grounds were home to Glendale's powerful Brand family. These days, it's better known as Brand Park, a recreational and cultural hub nestled in a quiet Glendale canyon. At its center is the stunning Spanish, Moorish and Indian-inspired Brand Library. It boasts over 110,000 items in its collection, many dedicated to music and the arts, and often hosts free exhibitions, concerts, screenings and lectures.

The Brand is a gem. The architecture, groundskeeping and mountainous surroundings are gorgeous. They go out of their way to provide a comfortable, clean, quiet space for people to work and study almost every day. The connected art museum actually curates relevant, lively, challenging exhibitions on a regular cycle. And they just introduced a little corner with armchairs, a record player, and headphones so you can hang out and listen to vinyl LP's. This is literally everything a library should aspire to be.
It's my favorite place in all of LA county. A magical, beautiful place filled with art and music and it's free....everything is free!
