It’s hard not to connect the dots between the City of Glendale’s proposal to sell one of its library branches to Midwestern University for $5 million to its past sports and development deals, namely the $15 million it pays to the Arizona Coyotes each year.

Glendale is holding public meetings this week on the library sale plan and hearing plenty of consternation from opponents of selling the Foothills Library Branch near Union Hills Drive and 59th Avenue.

If the sale happens, Midwestern would buy the 33,000-square-foot Foothills branch and the city library would move into 9,100-square-feet of space at a nearby aquatics and recreation center, according Erik Strunk, Glendale’s director of parks, recreation and library services.
