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.
