Library Closed for Labor Day
The Library will be closed on
Monday, September 1, for Labor Day.
We will reopen on Tuesday, September 2. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.

Village Library Relocated
Sedona Public Library in the Village has moved! The new temporary location is Suite D-100 in the courtyard of Tequa Plaza, which is almost directly across from the old site. There is ample parking and handicap access towards the back of the complex. The Library's hours and phone number remain the same.  All hold pick-up dates have been extended until September 2.

Thank you to the many volunteers who assisted with moving the entire Village library in just a few days, after a roof leak caused flooding in the former location. We look forward to seeing everyone in our spacious new site!
Weaving and Spinning Display
National Spinning and Weaving Week is October 6 through 12. Members of the Verde Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild will celebrate by demonstrating their skills and displaying their work at the Library beginning September 22 and continuing through the second week in October. Don't miss this opportunity to see the beautiful crafts created by talented local fiber artists!

Youth Services Update
In September, the monthly homeschoolers group will reconvene. The group meets in the community room from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. Families who homeschool, want to homeschool, or just want to meet other homeschoolers in the area are welcome to participate.

Every Thursday in September from 3:30 to 5 p.m., children are invited to attend new technology and games programming. On Wednesday, September 24, join us for an after-school movie, starting in the community room at 3:30 p.m.

We are looking for a volunteer with chess expertise who would like to facilitate an ongoing chess program for all ages every Friday from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. The space is booked, the boards are bought, and the local children who regularly participate are hoping that we fill the recently vacated volunteer spot so that the program will continue. Call the Library's youth department for more information, 928-282-7714 ext. 119.
