So…you’ve finally decided to purchase an e-reader. That’s the easy part. Now comes the hard part. Which e-reader is best suited to your needs? There are so many tablet computers and e-readers on the market it’s hard to decide. Do you want a Kindle or a Nook? Would a tablet be better for you? The more choices you have, the more confusing the decision becomes.

Let Sedona Public Library in the Village help you with your dilemma. Attend our program entitled “Join the E-Reader Revolution” on Friday, Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at SPL-V.

During this presentation you will learn about features of different electronic devices such as the Kindle and Kindle Fire, the Nook and Nook Color, the Apple iPad and the Nexus Tablet.

You will also have opportunities to speak with individuals who own these devices and use them to download and read e-books. This workshop is intended to give participants time to examine demonstration models of several electronic devices.

This workshop is NOT intended to teach you how to use your e-reader device. That’s another workshop altogether. Look for upcoming workshops in January of 2013. Registration is required and seating is limited, so please call Cheryl at 928-284-1603 to sign up.

The Rotating Artists Program (RAP) at Sedona Public Library in the Village has been very well received.

We would like to thank the artists who participated during 2012: Steve Simon, Abby Parella, McKenzie Moore, Ismea Westerveld, Geoffrey Worssam, Jeff Colburn, Gayle Potter and Len Lewis. These talented artists have shared their artwork to grace the walls of the library.

In addition, they have generously donated a portion of their sales from their exhibitions to SPL-V. Special thanks to Anne Uruburu, president of the Sedona Public Library Board of Trustees, for making the RAP program a success. Anne makes all the arrangements for the Rotating Artists Program.

We look forward to collaborating with local artists to feature their artwork at SPL-V. We are happy to report that our RAP calendar for 2013 is completely booked.

The photography of Len Lewis is currently showing at SPL-V until Jan. 5, 2013. Chuck Schug’s exhibit of framed photography will begin Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013.

Did you know you could purchase holiday gifts at SPL-V? Gayle Potter’s unique spirit sticks are made of fused glass. The spirit sticks are on display and prices vary.

We are also selling holiday ornaments handcrafted by the Northern Arizona Chapter Embroiderers’ Guild of America. These ornaments which sell for $5 each include knit people, light bulb ornaments, and square ornaments. A portion of sales will benefit SPL-V.

Take part in the community book discussion at Sedona Winds on Monday, Dec. 17. The program begins at 1:30 p.m. at Sedona Winds, 405 Jacks Canyon Road. The book discussion will focus on the book “Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books” by Iranian author and professor Azar Nafisi.

Pick up your loaner copy of the book at SPL-V. Monica Lane of the Flagstaff Public Library will facilitate the book discussion. The program is free and open to the public. All are welcome!
