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.

SAVE THE DATE! Snowflake Celebration Community Gathering
The Friends of the Sierra Madre Library announce the second annual Snowflake Celebration to be held Saturday, December 2 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Hart Park House, 222 W. Sierra Madre Blvd in Sierra Madre. This holiday event will feature light appetizers, wine, holiday treats, music, and prizes! For the children there will be face painting, cookie decorating, and the crafting of snowflake ornaments, as well as the opportunity to have their photos taken with the Snowflake Princess! You can add even more magic to your evening by choosing a “wish” from our holiday wish tree. These “wishes” will fund specific library requests which will benefit the Sierra Madre Library and its programs.
Tickets for this community event are $10 for adults and $5 for children (children under 5 are free) and can be purchased here.
All proceeds from this event help support the programs for children and adults at the Sierra Madre Public Library throughout the year.
Don’t miss this event!
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.”
