Come Play Drag Bingo to Raise Funds for the Library!
Due to the pandemic, the Wine & Cuisine Tasting Benefit will not be happening this year (or next?). The committee has been thinking “out of the box” for other ideas to help support the children’s programs, book purchases, and supplies needed at the Sierra Madre Public Library. They have found a great way for you to spend a fun evening in your own home – Drag Queen Bingo!!
The date is Saturday, December 5 and will be held live at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Coast Time – but wherever you live in the U.S. you can just Zoom in to join us! “Peachy” is our host for this 2-hour event. He will share jokes, sing songs, and host 3 games of Bingo. You can buy as many Bingo cards as you would like to help support our cause, they are $15 per card.

What Your Support Means
As the old song says, “I get by with a little help from my friends”. It was 1953 when a few visionaries recognized that even a library needs a friend and so began the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library. From that modest beginning, we have grown to an organization of over 300 members whose bylaws state that “The purpose of the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library is to promote awareness of, support for, and utilization of the high quality programs, services, and facilities of the Sierra Madre Library as a lifelong center of learning.”
