Giving to Your Library Is a Wise Investment!
Celebrate spring by making a gift to your Library! From now through April 7 your gift to Sedona Public Library will be doubled! What a great way to celebrate spring!

Gordon Reiter, a patron and philanthropist from the Village of Oak Creek, has pledged to match your gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000. It's always smart to give to your Libary, but it's a wise investment when you know your gift will be doubled!

We provide important community services, and your gift is an investment in your hometown. Join us to celebrate Sedona and spring when you make a gift for Library Giving Day!
March Donor Spotlight: Mountain High Flowers
When Martha Aaron, owner of Mountain High Flowers, heard from a wholesaler who had some extra roses, Martha had an idea. "I've always wanted to decorate a sculpture in Sedona. What better place to start than with the City's namesake?" For March 8, to commemorate International Women's Day, the Library, and the City of Sedona, Martha and her team created a 21-foot garland of 300 roses and adorned the statue of Sedona.

Martha is an artist and an entrepreneur. This act of generosity for her was an expression of her passion for all things Sedona. She opened her shop in 2017, and it's the largest retail florist in Sedona and the Verde Valley. The garland brought smiles for patrons and visitors alike. An Uber driver noted, "People ask to see the turquoise arches, but I'm going to start bringing tourists here!" We are grateful to Martha and her team for helping us celebrate spring and the Library. Thank you to Martha and Mountain High Flowers!
