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 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 future upcoming events sponsored by Bookmarks.
A job well done by our very dedicated book sale volunteers!
Our appreciation and thanks to the owners of Burning Tree Cellars for selecting Bookmarks as the recipient of this year’s Chili Cook-off proceeds. The successful event raised $900.00. Bookmarks will purchase children’s books for the Cottonwood Public Library with the donated money.
