Dear Members and Partners

As February unfolds with its romantic charm, Sierra Madre Blvd is not only graced by beautiful weather but also witnesses the enchanting transformation of the old Bank of America building into a lovely temporary library. This remarkable change is credited to the dedication of City Librarian Leila Regan and her diligent staff who have worked tirelessly to seamlessly transition the Library into its temporary abode.

Driving along Sierra Madre Blvd, one cannot help but appreciate the sight of the temporary library functioning with the same efficiency and warmth as its permanent home. It is a testament to the hard work and commitment of the library staff, ensuring that the community continues to have access to a wealth of literary resources.

Our Best Used Book Sale takes place in the parking lot of 350 W. Sierra Madre Blvd on Friday, February 2 and Saturday, February 3, this sale promises a diverse array of literary treasures. Whether you’re into vintage collections, newer fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, art, history, or any other genre, there will be something to captivate every reader’s heart.

This event provides an excellent opportunity for residents to not only explore and discover hidden gems but also support their local Library. The funds raised from the book sale contribute to the children’s programming for the Library ensuring that it remains a vibrant hub for learning and community engagement.
