Village Library Relocating
Sedona Public Library in the Village is moving. Our new location will be Suite 51 A in Bell Rock Plaza (between Fitzpatrick Law Building and Verde Valley Medical Center Laboratory).
To prepare for this move, the Village library will be closed September 15 through September 19. The library will open in the new location at Bell Rock Plaza at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, September 22. You may continue to use the book drop boxes at Tequa until Thursday, September 17. Due dates for returns and holds will be adjusted to accommodate days closed.

If you have questions or need assistance during the time that we are closed, please contact the main library at 928-282-7714. Thank you for your support and generous donations to continue library services in the Village.
Verde Valley Ancestral Heritage Presentation
Learn about a new archaeological site protection program and plans for a new archaeology center, on Thursday, September 17, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the community room at Sedona Public Library.

Speaker Ken Zoll, Executive Director of Verde Valley Archaeology Center (VVAC), will present an overview of the more than 2,500 Ancestral Puebloan sites in the Verde Valley, will discuss challenges in protecting sites, and will announce expansion of the Verde Valley Site Watch Program by VVAC in collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service and the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office. Zoll will be joined by a Hopi guest from the Second Mesa who will share words of gratitude for protection of his ancestral heritage.
Weaving and Spinning Display
Members of the Verde Valley Weavers and Spinners Guild will demonstrate their skills and display their work at the Library from September 14 through 30. Don't miss this opportunity to see the beautiful crafts created by talented local fiber artists.
Support the Library through Dough on the Go
Buy a baguette at Wildflower Bread Company's Sedona location, and 10% of the purchase price will be donated to the Library. The baguettes are in the Dough on the Go display by Wildflower's front door, so you can grab a baguette, put $2 in the jar, and be on your way. It's a quick, inexpensive, and yummy way to support the Library.
Movies in September
This month, Flicker Shack presents a coming-of-age comedy, a thought-provoking documentary, and a heartwarming classic fairy tale. These free movies start on Monday nights at 6 p.m. in the community room. Please note that there will be no movie on Labor Day.
