The photo features the Sedona Miller Schnebly monument, located near the entrance of the Sedona Public Library. It was Sedona’s first Art in Public Places project. The monument was commissioned and donated to the City by the Red Rock Arts Council in 1994. Local artist Susan Kliewer created the sculpture. The unveiling of the monument was part of the dedication ceremony of Sedona Public Library, held October 1, 1994.

Lisa Schnebly Heidinger, great-granddaughter of Sedona, posed as its model. Lisa is an author and a speaker for Arizona Humanities.

The Sedona Public Library offers winter activities as every library does. Recently we hosted a program to make 3D snowflakes to decorate the Library. The program was attended by youth and adults, working side by side, to create their own original, one-of-a-kind 3D snowflakes.

Another huge event that we have in the winter is the annual quilt show. This display attracts many visitors to the Library. Stop by the Library to view the beautiful handiwork of local quilters. Quilts will be on display from December 22 until Friday, February 15. The quilt display is very popular and is worth the drive to Sedona.
