Sedona AZ (February 1, 2019) – This February, Sedona Public Library is celebrating Love Your Library Month. It’s our way of encouraging you to take advantage of the many free services we offer and for you to demonstrate your support for the Library.
If you don’t have a library card, now is the perfect time to apply for one. Get your free card at the main library in West Sedona (3250 White Bear Rd.) or Sedona Public Library in the Village (51A Bell Rock Plaza). Bring your photo ID and proof of local residency. Your library card will give you access to over one million library materials at 42 libraries in the Yavapai Library Network.
Lost your card? During February we are waiving the $5 replacement card fee. So stop in and get a new card, completely free of charge.
