Latino Services Librarian Joins Staff
Pamela Espinosa de los Monteros
Greetings Sedona community, my name is Pamela Espinosa de los Monteros. I am very pleased to join the Sedona Public Library team as the new Latino Services Librarian.

As a Mexican-American growing up in San Diego, California, I relied on the resources at the public library, which played an important role in my academic and professional development. I first chose to pursue a career in librarianship while completing a Fulbright Garcia Robles Fellowship in Mexico City, Mexico, where I observed frequent challenges stemming from cross-cultural information exchange. I pursued graduate studies in Library and Information Science at Syracuse University in New York State. There, I recognized the cultural differences that exist within countries, as they do across borders.

In addition to traveling throughout Latin America, I have spent six years working in not-for-profit programming. Throughout my career, I have focused on creating opportunities for cross-cultural dialogue and understanding. I now hope to continue developing relevant library programming that will support our Latino community, and would also like to invite the Sedona community at large to learn about and participate in Latino culture.

Please keep an eye out for Latino cultural events at the Library, such as the upcoming celebration of the Day of the Dead/D�a de los Muertos, the Latino Film Series offered the first Monday of every month, ESL classes, and much more.

I am excited to join the Sedona community and look forward to seeing you at the Library!
November Movies at the Library
Each Monday night in November, the Flicker Shack film series will present a free movie at 6 p.m. in the Si Birch Community Room. Latino Services will screen the Mexican heist movie "Ladr�n Que Roba a Ladr�n" ("To Rob a Thief") on November 4. "The Music Never Stopped," a film about the healing power of music, is the selection for November 11. Teens and adults are invited to attend the November 18 movie, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," adapted from the best-selling coming-of-age novel. A Beirut beauty salon is the setting for the film that will be shown on November 25, a romantic comedy from Lebanon entitled "Caramel."
New Internet Computers
Next time you're at the Library, try one of our new Internet computers. We recently replaced 16 of our Windows XP computers with faster Windows 7 all-in-one machines. Featuring 23-inch monitors, the new computers offer Microsoft Office 2010 programs like Word and Excel, plus Internet access, printing, and web cameras. The larger screens are ideal for watching DVDs!
