Sterling Public Library will be no fuss and more at the park on Monday July 4th as we celebrate the holidays.

Story time will be offered every Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Baby Time for 0-24 months will be at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesdays. ABC story time for ages 2-5 will be at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday or 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Both ABC Storytimes will be the same, so pick the one that best suits your schedule. Storytime helps young children develop a lifelong love of reading and books.

Tuesday, July 5, at 2:00 p.m. is Tween Time @ the Library. This week, the group will do string art. Denise has a great model to try out. This program is for children 9 to 12 years old.

The Chapter Chat at the Library for ages 6-9 will take place on Wednesday, July 6 at 10:30 a.m. Denise will continue to read the chapter book and the children will do fun activities that go along with the story. This is our last chapter discussion for the summer. Watch next week for more on Cooking With Kids @ the Library at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. Cooking With Kids is aimed at children aged 6 to 12.

Meghan Casey returns to the Sterling Public Library on Wednesday July 6 at 6:00 p.m. Meghan, Aden and her puppet cast will provide “Dive In & Discover Yourself”. Meghan will give us a lot of fun as we discover a little about ourselves.

Every Thursday at 5:15 p.m., the library will host Teen Movie Night. This is a moment reserved for teenagers. Snacks and a drink will be offered. Most films will be rated PG-13, so parental discretion is advised. The titles of the films will be announced one week before the broadcast.

On Thursday June 30 at 3:30 p.m. Jason will deliver a program on our Cyprus Resume software. This is a new service added by the library that helps you build your resume. Jason will provide basic information about the program and show you how to use it to create your CV.

Friday, July 1, from 10 a.m. at 2:00 p.m. Jason will offer another plant exchange at the library. It’s a great way to acquire new plants. Jason will have some plants to start the trade. Bring cuttings of your healthy, disease- and pest-free plants to trade with friends and strangers.

On Tuesday, July 5, Jason will be offering his summer school program on reading historical maps. Come and explore history through maps. You never know where they may take you.

There is still time to register for the reading component of the library’s summer reading program. There are lots of prizes to be won and chances to win the grand prizes. Reading for fun over the summer is a great way to pass time and maintain skills for the next school year.

If you have any questions about anything, please call the library at 522-2023. We hope to see you this summer.
