Mary Tumilty Endowment Fund — Established in 1991 on the occasion of Mary Tumilty’s retirement in recognition of her years of service as Director of Library Services. Funds generated are available for needs at the Library such as acquiring books, maps, computer software, CDs, audio books, programs used for educational purposes and other materials of permanent value and benefit to the Sierra Madre Public Library.

Sommer Library Scholarship Fund — Former Friends’ President John Sommer and his wife Cynthia Hicks established this fund in 1991 to help educate future Library and information professionals. To qualify, students must be accepted into a program that fulfills these goals.

Partners Program — Established in 2009, the Partners support the Library through an annual dues contribution at 3 levels of membership: Partner—$100 or more; Silver—$250 or more; and Gold—$500 or more. Funds generated will be used for select programs or projects that have been requested by the Director of Library Services. A recognition plaque honoring all of our Partners is on display in the main lobby of the Library.

You can also designate any of the Library programs, services or equipment that you feel would benefit the most from your donation. Thank you for your support!
