New Book-Return Slot at Check-In
Circulation Desk In response to patrons' concern about items not yet checked in being piled up at the check-in desk, we have unveiled a book-return slot. If you are in a hurry and require expedited check-in of items with a checkout quantity limit (DVDs, CD audiobooks, etc.), simply ask the volunteer at that station for assistance. This change also prepares us for our upcoming transition to RFID, a faster and more accurate method of checking in and out items.
Displays at the Library
As part of their annual show, the Verde Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild is displaying a wide variety of fiber arts at the Library through October 12. A demonstration of spinning will take place on Monday, October 8, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Sedona Camera Club's "Photographic Images, 2012" will be on display for the entire month of October. Club members' photographs cover a variety of subjects, including local landscapes and wildlife, as well as interesting portraits.

Activities for Tweens and Teens

Ages 9 through 12 are invited to the book club kick-off, which will be on Saturday, October 20, from 1 to 2 p.m. Book clubs can be a fun and interesting way to turn children on to the wonderful world of books.
