SPL in the Village of Oak Creek
Sedona Public Library opened SPL in the Village (originally called the Village Service Center) in December 2005. Now, nearly 2,000 people visit each month to pick up items they’ve ordered through the Yavapai County Network or return items from any library in the network. Unreserved items that are returned each day can be checked out. SPL in the Village does not have a circulating collection of its own. Items can be ordered from any computer with internet access via the Sedona Public Library online catalog and picked up at SPL in the Village.
Patrons and visitors may use free computers to access the internet. SPL-V has Wi-Fi available during operating hours. Many people bring their laptops for free wireless access. Patrons and visitors may use the charging station to charge and power multiple devices including phones, tablets, and laptops. The Village location also offers mobile printing, scanning, and faxing. The charging station and mobile printing were funded by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
The library is pleased to offer the option of returning materials from the Yavapai Library Network to the book drop boxes available at the Village location. While the book drops are convenient, they are intended for use after hours. Bring materials inside if the library is open.
Book drop boxes are not kind to library materials. It is a good idea to put magazines, CD books, and DVDs in a bag to protect them. Thank you for your assistance in keeping library materials in good condition.
Note that book sale donations are not accepted at Sedona Library in the Village. Please take all book sale donations to the FOL bookstore at 3270 White Bear Road, the house next to Sedona Public Library. Please do not put book sale donations in the book drop or leave them outside. Thank you for your cooperation.
