Sedona AZ (September 4, 2015) – September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when Sedona Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to encourage everyone to access the free services available at their local library.
Your Sedona library card is probably one of the most valuable and underused cards in your wallet. As a Sedona Public Library cardholder, not only can you access all of the services here in Sedona, you also have access to 42 other libraries in the Yavapai Library Network. That means over 2,000,000 items are easily accessible to you via your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Just search for an item in the catalog on our website— www.sedonalibrary.org— put the item on hold, and have it delivered to your nearest library for pickup.
Don’t read print books anymore? Your library card gives you access to thousands of free e-books and online magazines that you can download from the comfort of your own home. Don’t have an e-reader, no problem! You can check out a Nook for free and enjoy twenty pre-loaded books. See the reference desk for details.
Are you a movie buff? Come check out our extensive collection of DVDs. Choose from popular TV series, foreign films, non-fiction programming, and blockbusters. To watch a movie on the big screen, come to Flicker Shack Mondays for our free weekly movie in the Si Birch Community Room.
Getting a library card is simple. Just stop into your local branch with your photo ID and proof of residency and we will issue your card. If you haven’t used your card in a while, we encourage you to drop by the circulation desk and update your e-mail address and contact information so that you can receive our monthly e-newsletter, which will tell you about the programming and free services available each month.
Lost your card? During September we are waiving the $5 replacement card fee. So stop in and get yourself a new card, completely free of charge.
