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.

June Best Used Book Sale

The Friends June Book Sale will take place on Friday, June 3 (3:00-7:00 p.m.) and Saturday, June 4 (10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.) behind the library. We are excited to announce that the basement will be open for the first time in two years! There will be limited capacity at first so plan to get there early for the best bargains. Featured will be selected titles from The Works of Charles Dickens, a Limited Edition set from 1906. Many prominent artists of the day contributed illustrations to these volumes and, although the covers show some fading, the interiors are tight and clean and ready for many more hours of reading. Also available will be many fiction and non-fiction books about Sports, History and Militaria, including some newer “Thrillers.” Look for our beautiful and colorful “Coffee-Table” books on many subjects.

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.”
