We are pleased to announce that Sedona Public Library in the Village (SPL-V) is now open five days a week. Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
As we are gradually reopening, please know that our top priority is to provide a healthy and safe environment for everyone. Wearing masks is required to enter the Library. Maintain social distancing when waiting to pick up your holds or when you are inside the building. Thank you for your cooperation.
The following library services are available in the Village:
HOLDS PICKUP AT THE DOOR: Thank you for your patience as holds may take a little longer than usual to arrive. When you have been notified that your holds are available and you are ready to pick them up, come to the door and give us your name. While it is not necessary to call in advance, a phone call expedites the process if you are picking up several items. If your call is not answered, please call back to speak to staff. Do not leave a message.
COMPUTER USE: We currently have three computers for public use. Computers are available on a first come, first served basis. Computer sessions are limited to 30 minutes.
PRINT, SCAN, FAX, COPY: You may print from a patron computer, scan documents, and make copies using the copy machine. Cost is 10 cents per page for black and white copies. We do not have a color printer. Cost to fax is $1 per page. Please have the correct change. We do not accept credit cards.
WI-FI ACCESS: If you bring your own laptop, you are welcome to use the Wi-Fi outside. Please see staff for password.
BROWSING COLLECTION: Our browsing collection is not available at this time. You may use a patron computer to search the online catalog and place holds. Place your holds online at sedonalibrary.org, or call the library if you need assistance. If you prefer browsing in the stacks, we encourage you to visit the main library in West Sedona. While you are there, stop by the Friends of the Sedona Library used bookstore in the house adjacent to the Library. The FOL bookstore offers a nice selection of books, movies, music and more. They have cool bookmarks too.
BOOK RETURN: The book return located outside is intended for use after hours. If you are using the book return at the main library or SPL-V or are returning library materials to another library in the Yavapai Library Network, your items may not be checked in right away. Each library has a policy to quarantine items.
Thanks for your continuing support of library services in the Village of Oak Creek. We appreciate your kind words, delicious treats, and donations directed to SPL-V. The masks you have donated have been put to good use.
