Sierra Madre local history will get a big boost with a new grant just received by the Sierra Madre Public Library. The grant of $7,500 will enable the Library to train teen volunteers as history docents using new Digital Storyboard technology at the Library’s Local History Room and at the Richardson House museum. Recruiting and training of teens will begin in September.
Picture a lazy summer afternoon with a cool comfortable spot, soft music, a little poetry, and a good book. Then picture yourself relaxing this Saturday, July 27, in the Sierra Madre Public Library with Saturday Afternoon Café Sounds at 4:00 p.m.
Chill to light acoustic music with the Summer Reading Program theme of Reading is So Delicious! The programs will feature a spoken word artist traci kato-kiriyama and musician Liane Tominaga.
