Friends of the Library Book Sale
This year, October 16 - 22 is the annual celebration of National Friends
of Libraries Week. Sedona Public Library takes this time to thank the Friends
of the Sedona Library, who contribute so much of their time and expertise
to significantly enhance our services.
Our Friends group was started in 1964 and officially became a 501(c) (3)
nonprofit corporation in November 1967. Donations and memberships are deductible
to the full extent allowable by law.
The mission of the Friends of the Sedona Library is to support the Sedona
Public Library as it strives to encourage literacy, lifelong learning,
and the love of reading throughout our diverse community; to enhance the
resources, increase the community’s access to information and knowledge;
to provide for a vibrant cultural gathering place, and cultivate
a sense of public involvement through volunteering for the community.
Friends hold semiannual books sales that help fund collection expansion
as well as children’s and other community programs during the year.
The books that are offered through these sales come from the existing
library collection when they are no longer needed by the library and by
ongoing donations from the community.
The schedule for this year’s Fall Book Sale is as follows:
Preview Night: Monday, October 24, 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
for Friends of the Library, invited guests, staff and volunteers.
Sale: October 25 – 30 Sale open to the public during
regular library hours Tuesday through Saturday and also on Sunday, October
30 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Friends also sell books online through Amazon.com. Take a peek at their
inventory by going to http://www.amazon.com/shops/sedonafossilz.
You can also support the Friends of the Library by purchasing a Bashas’ Community
Card at the Library’s reference desk for $10 (they are not available
for purchase at the grocery store). By purchasing a card, you can donate
six percent of your regular grocery expenses to the Friends group, at no
additional cost to you.

you are cordially invited to join. To do so, please pick up a membership
