So...you've finally decided to purchase an e-reader. That's the easy part.
Now comes the hard part. Which e-reader is best suited to your needs?
There are so many tablet computers and e-readers on the market it's hard to decide.
Do you want a Kindle or a Nook? Would a tablet be better for you?
The more choices you have, the more confusing the decision becomes.
Let Sedona Public Library in the Village help you with your dilemma.
Attend our program entitled "Join the E-Reader Revolution" on Friday,
December 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at SPL-V. During this
presentation you will learn about features of different electronic devices
such as the Kindle and Kindle Fire, the Nook and Nook Color, the Apple
iPad and the Nexus Tablet. You will also have opportunities to
speak with individuals who own these devices and use them to download
and read e-books. This workshop is intended to give participants
time to examine demonstration models of several electronic devices.
This workshop is NOT intended to teach you how to use your e-reader
device. That's another workshop altogether. Look for upcoming
workshops in January of 2013. Registration is required and seating
is limited, so please call Cheryl at 928.284.1603 to sign up.
The Rotating Artists Program (RAP) at Sedona Public Library in the
Village has been very well received. We would like to thank the
artists who participated during 2012: Steve Simon, Abby Parella,
McKenzie Moore, Ismea Westerveld, Geoffrey Worssam, Jeff Colburn, Gayle
Potter and Len Lewis. These talented artists have shared their
artwork to grace the walls of the library. In addition, they have
generously donated a portion of their sales from their exhibitions to
SPL-V. Special thanks to Anne Uruburu, president of the Sedona Public
Library Board of Trustees, for making the RAP program a success.
Anne makes all the arrangements for the Rotating Artists Program.
We look forward to collaborating with local artists to feature their
artwork at SPL-V. We are happy to report that our RAP calendar for 2013
is completely booked. The photography of Len Lewis is currently
showing at SPL-V until January 5, 2013. Chuck Schug's exhibit
of framed photography will begin Tuesday, January 8, 2013.
Did you know you could purchase holiday gifts at SPL-V? Gayle
Potter's unique spirit sticks are made of fused glass. The spirit
sticks are on display and prices vary. We are also selling holiday
ornaments handcrafted by the Northern Arizona Chapter Embroiderers'
Guild of America. These ornaments which sell for $5.00 each include
knit people, light bulb ornaments, and square ornaments. A portion
of sales will benefit SPL-V.
