Jacqueline Winspear, author of Maisie Dobbs, will speak at The Gooden School on Saturday, February 22, 2014, at 2 p.m. as the culminating event of the Sierra Madre Public Library, One Book, One City program.
Teen History Docent Training Classes are forming. 5 choices for training from October 2013 through early April 2014. Small groups of teens will train to give tours using the new Digital Storyboard technology at the Library’s Local History Room and at the Richardson House museum. Sierra Madre‘s Library received a grant from the state to train the teen volunteers as history docents.
The Sierra Madre Public Library is pleased to partner with the local SPERO Foundation, a non-profit organization, to promote reading through the Read campaign. The Library is currently featuring the Foundation on posters and on bookmarks that are available at the Library.
The SPERO Foundation was established in 2008 by Heidi Hartman, Colleen McKernan, Linda Knowles, Susan Clifton and Kathy Childs.
Creativity and fun are in store when children gather at the Sierra Madre Public Library to create mini rose floats on Monday, December 23 at 10 a.m. Children of all ages are welcome to storytime for stories, songs, play, and, of course, rose float making.
Maisie Dobbs has been chosen as the Sierra Madre Public Library 2014 One Book One City choice and an appearance by the author Jacqueline Winspear will highlight a month of exciting free programs at the Library.
Beginning in January 2014, patrons of the Sierra Madre Public Library may choose to receive their overdue notices by e-mail instead of mailed print notices.
