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.
Sierra Madre’s archives, housed at the Library, will be closed from August 5 through August 23, 2013, as materials are moved to the Library basement and the new Local History Room is set up at the Library. During this time the Digital Storyboards will be installed at the Library and the Richardson House.
