Adults Reading Kid's Stuff

The Sterling Public Library is happy to resurrect a popular adult program from the past,  A.R.K.S.  In this 6 weeks program kids’ books and children’s authors will be explored.  Participants will also be challenged to read books from a “Bingo sheet.”  Those who take the reading challenge and fill up the bingo sheet will receive a bag of children’s books.

A.R.K.S. programs will be held each Monday in March 2019 and April 1 and 8, 2019.  Programs will be held in the library community room from 6:00-7:00 PM.
