Dear Members and Partners

Our Annual Dinner Meeting was a complete success!! We are close to our pre-pandemic attendance so it looks like we will have to book a larger venue.  The theme was “Embracing Friendship and Community Through Books.”  It was very nice to see Mayor Garcia and Councilmember Parkhurst in attendance and chatting with our many volunteers from The Best Used Book Sale, Friends of the Sierra Madre Library Art Fair, and our newest community event The Snowflake Festival.  I would like to give a special thanks to Sharon Murphy, Jeanne Martin, Martha Troedson, Leslie Ziff and Margaret Quigley for their extra awesome help with putting the annual dinner together!

The Friends of the Sierra Madre Library will be co-sponsoring a Summer Concert in the Park.  The very talented band will be The Skinny Ties.  The concert will be on Sunday, August 6 at 6:00 p.m. in Memorial Park.  It is nice to get out of the house, sit on the grass and feed your soul with some great music.  We will have our booth set up giving away a refreshing treat.  Please stop by and say “Hi!”

Do you have great ideas for fund raising and want to share them?  Do you enjoy supporting your community through volunteerism?  Are you looking to socialize with a great group of Friends?  We are the place for all of that and more!  Please reach out if you or someone you know fits that description.

If you know of someone who would like to be a Partner and be a part of these wonderful events, reach out to me, or visit our website  We have also created this very handy QR code below.  This link will take you directly to the site to join our Partners Program.

It gives me so much joy to be a part of this very awesome group! If you or someone you know would like to volunteer for Friends or any of our events, please reach out to me at 626-202-8502.
