THE DONOR SPOTLIGHT IS ON STEWART TITLE, an escrow and title company that believes in buidling a caring community.They support the Library each time they rent the Community Room for continuing education. “We believe in paying it forward,” said Natalie Kurz, branch manager who passes the hat for the Library. “We are fortunate to have a Library like this in our small town," she tells her group, emphasizing that the Library is a 501(c)(3) organization. Participants make a generous donation at every session! Thank you, Natalie, and everyone at Stewart Title, for giving back to the community.
Sedona Public Library is truly rooted in this community. The beautiful facility on White Bear Road was built entirely with support from 2,287 community donors over ten years: 1987-1997. Considering that the population of Sedona was approximately7,700 back then, this means nearly one third of Sedonans supported the library construction effort, and they gave more than $2.4 million.The building opened in 1994 and stands as a testament to the spirit of this beautiful community.

Sedona Public Library enriches lives by fostering lifelong learning and by ensuring that every member of the community and visitors have access to engaging ideas, information services, and cultural and civic activities.
