Tickets Now On Sale for the Second Annual Taste of 'Dena!

Audrey Hepburn once said, "To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." This year we invite you to plant a seed of support for the Altadena Library Foundation by joining us at the second annual Taste of Dena event on Saturday, September 29, from 7:00pm to 9:30pm. Every ticket purchase and sponsorship supports the Foundation's efforts to improve Altadena Library District's accessibility for the entire community, through both physical improvements to facilities and programming.

The event will feature delectable wine and beer tastings, samplings of amuse-bouches from local eateries, exciting prize drawings, the popular Mystery Wine Pull, and a luxurious silent auction. Tickets will sell quickly so we encourage you to buy now! Hint: Make it a date night (or a double date)! When you buy two or four tickets at a time, you get a discount.


Please Note: Programming Hiatus at Bob Lucas Branch and in Children's Department

From Monday, July 30, through Saturday, August 11, Children's programming will be on a hiatus so that staff can prepare for the new school year's activities and events.

From Monday, July 30, through Friday, August 17, all programming at the Bob Lucas Branch will be on hiatus to allow staff time to perform inventory in preparation for a technology update with minimal disturbance to patrons.

Pack a picnic and join us on Saturday, August 18 for an end-of-summer celebration featuring one final trip to another land... called Oz! Doors open at 6:00pm, and starting at 6:30pm, enjoy music and activities as you find your seat and set up your picnic area.
