Library Giving Day A Success 2nd Year in a Row!
Thank you for making the second annual Library Giving Day a success. We are one of 300 libraries in the U.S. that took this annual opportunity to ask our communities to support all that we do, and you stepped up to the plate to the tune of $54,200! Thanks to 150 of you who made 158 donations that were matched dollar for dollar by two generous donors: Gordon Reiter from the Village, and an anonymous volunteer! Special thanks to Rayna Griffin and her bookmarks for $75+ donors.
Thank you, One and All!

Donor Spotlight - 70 New Donors This Year!
Thanks to 70 new donors! Your support makes a huge difference to Sedona Public Library, an independent, 501c3, private, non-profit organization providing a public service. Your support supplements funding we receive from the City of Sedona, Yavapai and Coconino Counties, and Friends of the Sedona Library. It takes a lot to maintain our collection, services, exhibits, and programs--all year round and for free--and to maintain our White Bear Road facility and convenient service center in the Village of Oak Creek. We do it all for you, and we could not do it without you!
Thank you!
