The Friends of SaddleBrooke Libraries (FSL) was established in 2000 to provide funding for the three SaddleBrooke Libraries located inside the SaddleBrooke and MountainView Clubhouses and the DesertView Performing Arts Center. FSL raises funds for new library materials and equipment through:
- Membership fees
- Community education events
- Fundraising events and activities
- Tax-exempt gifts
Our members support these efforts by volunteering, attending fundraising events , donating library materials, making monetary gifts and encouraging others to join FSL.
We encourage you to become an FSL member and support the SaddleBrooke Libraries.
Throughout 2020 we’re celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the SaddleBrooke Libraries!
In addition to monthly lectures and our spring and fall author luncheons, we have added some very special events to commemorate this 30th anniversary. A complete list of events is provided in a downloadable flyer.

Guest Author: Jeffrey Siger
Jeffrey Sigler is an American living on the Aegean Greek island of Mykonos. A Pittsburgh native and former Wall Street lawyer, he gave up his career as a name partner in his own New York City law firm to write mystery thrillers that tell more than just a fast-paced story. His novels are aimed at exploring serious societal issues confronting modern day Greece in a tell-it-like-it-is style while touching upon the country’s ancient roots.
Tickets go on sale January 28th at 8:00 am at the HOA 1 Administration office OR online at tickets.saddlebrooketwo.com. Tickets are $30 each.
