58th Annual Sierra Madre Art Fair is Cancelled
The 2020 Sierra Madre Art Fair, scheduled for Saturday, May 2 and Sunday May 3, has been CANCELLED due to the current situation and future predictions about the Covid-19 virus and its impact on all of California.
We were hoping for a postponement but the City of Sierra Madre does not know when local events can start to happen again even for the summer. The health of us all is certainly our first priority in getting us all back to our regular routines, economic stability and a positive state of mind.
Dates for the 2021 Sierra Madre Art Fair are May 1-2 and we will let you know of those details as soon as they become available.
Thank you all for your support! and we will see you next year!

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.”
