Sierra Madre Library Receives Grant to Buy Books!

Good news for Sierra Madre. The Sierra Madre Public Library has just received $7,500 from the State of California to buy new books.  In a program called Books4U, all public libraries in California received these one-time funds through monies from the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). Funds are available this spring to buy print materials in six areas: Early Literacy/Parenting, Workforce Development, Non-English Language/ESL, Reference, Children’s/Teen, and Popular Fiction.

Library Director Carolyn Thomas said, “This is such good news. It will give us a boost in these tough economic times.”
