Genealogy Open House

Saturday, April 14, 2018 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
This event does not repeat

Visit the Sterling Public Library during the Genealogy Open House and learn about researching your family history. Make connections with other researchers and pick up on the latest tips and tricks in the field of genealogy. You can also take advantage of some one-on-one assistance from local genealogists during the open house. Also, learn about online and software research tools, and try out Ancestry.com on our library’s genealogy computers.

The Betty J. Gray Genealogy and Local History Room serves the community and library patrons in many ways from researching local history to helping patrons learn their family history.  Betty J. Gray left a trust fund to help purchase materials for this department.  Whiteside County Genealogists also contribute greatly as they house their research materials in the genealogy/local history department.  Anyone is welcome to use these materials, but because of the fragile and historical nature of this collection, almost all materials in this room are for in-library use only.

CANCELLED Know the Ten Signs of Alzheimer's Disease

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
This event does not repeat

The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Early detection gives you a chance to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future. Attend this training to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s in America. Hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others.

This is a free program.
