Visitor's Blog: "Stunning Sedona Public Library"

Circulation DeskDuring the Library's annual quilt show, Justine Shaffner of Colorado visited Sedona.  In a recent email to us, she wrote:

"Thank you for being so helpful and welcoming when I visited your library in January.  I just published the blog post on Sedona Public Library... Best wishes and congratulations on building a truly gorgeous library that is obviously a great source of community pride."

We were delighted with Justine's post, which captured a typical day, and invite you to read her description of our "stunning library."

New Collection at the Library
A new collection of MP3 CD audiobooks is now available for check out.

MP3 CDs look like regular CDs and can be played on CD players that are marked as MP3 CD compatible, including CD players in cars.

The advantage of this audiobook format is that an entire book fits on one disc!  The collection is located in the Library at the beginning of the CD book section.
