• Mt. Sterling Public Library has created a new initiative to promote early literacy called the “Super Reader Club.” The library has a list of 100 picture books that are recommended for children to read or have read to them before starting kindergarten. Parents interested in participating in this program with their child may pick up the list at the library. Once the hundred books are read, the parents turn in the list, and the child receives their Super Reading Club trophy and certificate of completion. This program will last until Summer Reading Club starts in June 2017.

• Preschool Storytime has began on Mondays at 10:30 a.m. in the library community room. Parents of preschool children 3-5 years old are encouraged to bring their children for a fun and interactive learning and social hour.
