Coffee with a Vet
Armed Forces Day, a day for citizens to come together and thank members of the military for their service to our country, is on May 17 this year.

On May 16, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the community room, you can meet and thank local veterans by attending Coffee with a Vet, a monthly event organized by the Veterans History Project. Everyone is welcome to participate and enjoy free coffee, cookies, and conversation with veterans.
Movies in May
Monday evening is free movie night at Sedona Public Library. Films start at 6 p.m. in the Si Birch Community Room.

On May 5, Latino Services presents the Spanish-language drama from Uruguay "Tanta Agua." The May 12 film, "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete," features a heart-wrenching yet hopeful story about two boys trying to survive on the streets of Brooklyn. "Saving Mr. Banks," about the making of the Walt Disney film "Mary Poppins," is the May 19 selection. There will be no film on Memorial Day, May 26.
Upcoming Displays

Intrigued by the current "Cosmos" television series but want to see more? Come to Sedona Public Library from May 5 through 27 to view photographs of the night sky taken by local astrophotographer Mike Cadwell. Astrophotography is a specialized type of photography that allows one to image objects invisible to the human eye, such as dim stars, nebulae, and galaxies.

From May 19 through 27, you can also view the National Public Works Week display, created by the City's Public Works Department. NPWW is a week during which public works organizations across the country educate communities about the importance of public works. The theme of this year's NPWW is "Building for Today, Planning for Tomorrow."  

Youth Services Kicks Off Summer Reading

The theme of the 2014 summer reading program for youth is Fizz! Boom! Read! Plan on joining us this summer as we explore science in many fun ways. We will kick off the season on Saturday, May 31, with a yucky program called Gross Science, based on Sylvia Branzei's "Grossology" book series. All summer long, we will host returning favorite programs as well as exciting new events aimed to wow and entertain kids of all ages.

We are putting out a call to our patrons who are interested in presenting science- or engineering-related programs to kids, such as Lego Robotics, Raspberry Pi projects, or snap circuits. The Library will provide materials-we're just looking for the right person to help us make these programs fun for the children of Sedona. If you've ever thought you would like to work with kids in an engaging and educational way, this may be just the opportunity you've been waiting for! Please stop by the Children's Room at the Library, or call us and ask for Karen at 928-282-7714 (option 4).
