On a lazy summer morning when most people were still sitting with their morning coffee, members of the Sierra Madre Rotary Club picked up their paint brushes and headed for the Library. Once there, they primed and painted the new Local History Room, getting it ready for the new Digital Storyboards which will feature stories about “Sierra Madre Stories & Treasures”.

The library received a state grant of $50,800 to upgrade historical collections and make them more available to the public. Staff and interns have been preparing materials for display in the space but it was Rotary that took the old space and made it into a lovely new space worthy of the name, Local History Room.

The Rotary Club of Sierra Madre, California was chartered on June 27, 1997. It is a part of Rotary International and as such values international service and has a commitment to the Rotary Foundation in addition to serving the local community.

The Club meets every Tuesday morning from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the Hart Park House located at the corner of Sierra Madre Blvd. and Hermosa Blvd. A typical meeting consists of time for socializing, breakfast, updates on club activities and a program of interest.
