Library Reorganization on August 2, 3, and 4

Flying books During the first week of August, we will be moving much of the adult collection. Because of the move, most of the materials will be unavailable on Thursday, August 2; Friday, August 3; and Saturday, August 4.


Daily newspapers will be available in a temporary location in the lobby. Pink-labeled popular materials will stay where they are and be available for checkout. Access to the holds shelf will be unaffected. The Children's Room will be open as usual.


We apologize for any inconvenience our reorganization may cause. Click here for a map of the new library layout. For more information about the changes, click here.  

Successful Year for Sedona Public Library

Sedona Public Library's 2012 fiscal year ended May 31. During this time, we experienced another year of growth and change.


Our primary service continues to be that of a traditional library: we check out books, movies, and audiobooks. In fiscal year 2012, we checked out 230,759 items, up 5% from last year. However, the Library is not just a place to pick up and check out materials. People still flock to the library to read the daily newspaper or the latest issue of a magazine, use financial or other reference material, attend a program, or use a computer.


The Library offered 870 programs (up 26% from the previous year), and attendance at them was 13,580 (up 23%). In addition, another 300 programs were held at the library by various non-profit and commercial groups.

A well-worn book is a well-loved book. While no circulating item can remain in pristine condition, we do try to repair, replace, or remove items that are badly damaged. You can help by alerting us about significant damage such as loose book pages or CDs that skip. Thanks in advance for lending a hand!
Keep Libraries Lending

While we always try to bring you the most current titles in print, more patrons than ever are requesting e-book copies of recent bestsellers. We currently offer a collection of 2,916 e-books for borrowing. However, some publishers are refusing to license or sell electronic books to libraries. Find out more by clicking here, and consider signing the petition calling upon publishers to partner with libraries to provide patrons continued access to e-books.

Upcoming Library Event in the Village

Where angels fear to tread A community book discussion of "Where Angels Fear to Tread," by E. M. Forster, will take place on Monday, August 27, at 1:30 p.m. at Sedona Winds, 405 Jacks Canyon Road.

Latino Movie Night

If you are interested in learning more about Hispanic culture through movies, don't miss the Flicker Shack Latino Movie Night on the first Monday of every month in the Si Birch Community Room, at 6:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to watch critically acclaimed movies from Spain and Latin American countries, including films released in the United States.
