Join Us For... A Virtual Wine Tasting Seminar
Don’t miss the Virtual Wine and Cuisine Tasting benefit on Friday, February 12, 2021 from 6:00 to 7:15 PM. The benefit will be hosted by Jeff Champion of Rae’s Place Fine Wine Boutique. Rae’s Place is owned and run by the Champion Family: Kate, Raegan (Rae) and Jeff. Jeff is native to the San Gabriel Valley. Kate is local, having grown up in Monrovia. Jeff is a certified wine expert who brings people together to appreciate the art and science of wine. Jeff has arranged a special appearance for you by Lisa and Michael from Sweetzer Cellars Wineries.
Inspired by a summer trip to France in 2008, Lisa and Michal began making wine in a second story apartment in West Hollywood. “We crushed in the carport, fermented in the dining room, and pressed in the kitchen. The bedroom, kept at 60 degrees, served as our cellar.” Plan to attend the Library Virtual Wine Tasting to learn more about Lisa and Michael’s journey in becoming highly successful California wine makers.
Whether you are thinking about romance, bromance or a virtual get-together with your best gal pals, this is for you!

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.”
