Display at the Library
"The Slide Fire Story: A Photographic Tribute to Oak Creek Canyon" is on display at the Library through June 15.

The exhibit presents 80 haunting images of the largest fire in the history of the Coconino National Forest, which ignited in Oak Creek Canyon in May 2014 and burned for 16 days. The photographs depict the fire's dramatic race up the Canyon and the efforts of over 1,200 firefighters to halt its fury.

The Rotary Club of Sedona and Rotary Club of Sedona Red Rocks created this exhibit to honor the firefighters and support the post-fire recovery. It was originally displayed at the Sedona Arts Center and received rave reviews from thousands of visitors at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff during a four-month exhibition.

  • June 1: Latino Services presents Spare Parts, about four undocumented Mexican-American high school students from Phoenix who compete against MIT in a national robotics competition.
  • June 8: Into the Woods, a musical woven from a collection of revered fairy tales, focusing on a childless couple who venture into the woods hoping to end a curse put on them by a vindictive witch.
  • June 15: Wild, based on the book about a young woman who decides to hike the entire Pacific Crest Trail, alone and with no experience.
  • June 22: Selma, a stirring historical drama highlighting the courage of the 1965 civil rights marchers as they withstood attacks by the police.
