Press release posted 5/17/12 – The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are upon us and if you’re looking for a good book to bring with you to the beach, the mountains, on the plane, or to that lawn chair under the tree in your back yard, the best place to find one is at the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library’s Best Used Book Sale. Held on Friday, June 1, from 3:00-7:00pm and Saturday, June 2, from 10:00am-2:00pm at the Sierra Madre Library, 440 W.
