Come enjoy the opening day festivities at the Sierra Madre Public Library and Richardson House on Saturday, September 28. Beginning at 10 am at Sierra Madre Public Library and continuing at 11 am at the Richardson House, this celebration highlights our grant-funded project featuring two innovative and interactive digital storyboards. Rediscover the rich history of Sierra Madre through this digitized platform displaying rare primary materials, historical images, and artifacts. Light summer refreshments will be served at each location.
Sierra Madre Stories & Treasures digital storyboard project utilizes sensacells to activate content from a portable hard drive and delivers rare and fragile primary resources to tell Sierra Madre’s story in a meaningful and engaging way. Categories at SMPL’s Local History Room include Joy Ride, Locals, Trailblazers, Disaster Strikes, Surprise Me, and Historic Hometown. Topics at Richardson House include Happy Trails, Our Museums, Bushels & Blooms, and Growing Up.
