Press Release posted 5/7/15 – Adults, teens & children – get ready to sign up for Sierra Madre Public Library’s Summer Reading Program — June 8 through August 10. Register anytime during this period and win prizes along the way.

Children read and record their books (print or e-Book), and prizes are awarded when each reading goal is met.
