Sedona Library celebrates one year at Tequa Marketplace
On Saturday, Jan. 28, Sedona Public Library in the Village (SPL-V) celebrated its one-year anniversary at the Tequa Marketplace.
SPL-V was previously located on Cortez Drive. In addition, the community joined together to observe the Arizona Centennial. Lisa Schnebly Heidinger, great-granddaughter of Sedona Schnebly, shared information from her most recent book entitled Arizona: One Hundred Years Grand.
This book has been designated as the official book of Arizona’s Centennial and the winner of the One Book Arizona 2012 adult selection.”
Several dignitaries including Chip Davis, Yavapai County Supervisor; Carolyn Fisher, President of Big Park Regional Council; and Virginia Volkman, Director of Sedona Public Library, addressed the audience about the importance of maintaining the library in the Village for the Village.
A major portion of funding for SPL-V is provided by Yavapai County.
The audience enjoyed entertainment presented by the Big Park Community School Garbage Can Band under the direction of music teacher, Jeanie Carroll, and “Three Sing," a local trio.
Local artists and businesses contributed prizes for the SPL-V raffle. Delicious refreshments were also donated by local businesses.
The book sale with collections of Arizona history, Arizona gardening, and Westerns was quite popular.
Many individuals contributed to the success of this special event, including our dedicated SPL-V volunteers and patrons.
However, the SPL-V committee served as the driving force behind the celebration. This group comprised of Anne Uruburu, chairperson; Pat Jansen, Gary Rubin, Leigh Shafer, Dotte Vande Linde, Virginia Volkman, and Cheryl Yeatts meets regularly to determine the needs of SPL-V.
