The Sedona Public Library was founded in 1958 by a group of community volunteers. It is and has always been a privately run Library. The land on which our beautiful library sits was donated and the library building was constructed with private funds and is entirely debt free. The Sedona Public Library receives funding to operate from the Friends of the Library, the City of Sedona, Coconino and Yavapai counties and private donations.
