Be a Friend

Being a Friend of the Library is a worthwhile experience. Members receive a monthly newsletter and, through volunteering, an opportunity to work with a dedicated group of people.

December Used Book Sale

The Friends are looking forward to the December Best Used Book Sale. It will be held on the Library parking lot on Friday, December 3, from 3:00-7:00 p.m. and Saturday, December 4, from 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.

Featured at this sale will be our entire collection of VINTAGE books. We have sets by Mark Twain, O. Henry, Charles Dickens, Sir Walter Scott, and “The Little Leather Library.” Individual books from Horatio Alger, Zane Grey and many others are also in this group. Look for interesting history books including photographs from World War I, and a personal photo album from England’s Queen Alexandra.

The Friends of the Library are sponsoring a Silent Auction of Collectible Books to be held in the Library from Monday, November 1 to Wednesday, December 1.

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.”
