The Library In Your Pocket

The Yavapai County Library system is participating in the eBook system called Overdrive. What this means, for people willing to spend a little time figuring things out, is that you can access a catalog of digital ebooks and audio books. With the proper software installed you can read or listen to these books on a wide variety of devices.

Kindle, the eBook service offered by Amazon is one of those software providers. If you are not familiar with that, you can go here and download the software for your device.

Once you get that done, you then go to the Sedona Public Library site, sign on to your account, find a book to read and a couple of clicks later, you can be reading or listening. Given the fact that the only thing you pay for is the cost of your device and internet connection, this is an amazing arrangement.

A message from PP chairperson Wendy Weidman

THANK YOU to all the families who attended the Family Social yesterday!  It was a great way to get to know each other a little bit better, hear a bit about upcoming plans and enjoy some TASTY food.  Everyone who provided appetizers, dinners, desserts, drinks, plates, cups, ice and utensils... A BIG THANK YOU!! 

Movie Night Coming Up!
The next event coming up quickly is an All-School Outdoor Movie Night, hosted by Upper Elementary as a fundraiser for their classroom.  This is happening Sept. 9th (next Friday). Everyone's invited! This takes place in the grassy area so bring your lawn chairs, blankets and kids for an evening under the stars.  There will be a small entrance fee and refreshments for sale.  Anyone wanting to help out at this event, please contact Marsha Johnson in UE at

Keep the Winter Gala in mind for December 2nd!  This event quickly sold out last year so to avoid that, we're starting early and figuring out a way to accommodate everyone.  More info will be coming on the details for this year -- tickets will be available starting at Movie Night.  Save the date!

Anyone interested in information about school event planning is welcome to drop in our Parent Partnership meetings the last Wednesday of every month from 4:30pm to 5:30pm.  If you can't make it and would like to have the highlights emailed to you, be sure to let me know if you haven't already gotten on the email list in the beginning of the year or yesterday at the Social. 

The next Parent Partnership meeting will take place September 28th although anyone interested in helping out at the Gala (set up, obtaining auction items, music planning, helping out the night of etc) please contact me as soon as possible b/c we'll be meeting before the 28th! (date to be determined)

Thanks again everyone!
