Perhaps the best known events associated with Bookmarks are its sponsored book sales held several times a year. The organization's goal, however, exceeds the sale of books. Offering a sense of community to Verde Valley residents through events and programs is what truly inspires the group.
Volunteers are always heartened to observe patron interaction during their time at the library. From spontaneous book discussions to a chance encounter with an old friend, the library goes far beyond being a place to check out books. Opportunities such as summer reading programs and the offering of a conversational Spanish class, both sponsored by Bookmarks, help bring together divergent members of the Verde Valley community. Additionally, new programs are being developed with the goal of increasing our outreach to local residents.
We hope you will bookmark this website so that you may be informed of upcoming events and programs.
The Book Boutique is highlighting humor during the month of August. When it is over 100 degrees, everyone needs a good laugh. Stop by and check out our books for sale and pick up a brochure listing interesting humor books in the library's collection. Maybe you will find something that 'tickles your funny bone.'
