Congratulations
Sterling Public Library
420 N. 5th St.çSterling, CO .....970-522-2023
The Logan County Chamber of Commerce is honoring the Sterling Public Library as the Business of the Week. On hand for the presentation were: (left to right) Erica Kallsen and Library Director Sandy VanDusen.
...Sterling Public Library opened on April 12, 1918 with much help from the Zeta Zeta Club. Money was raised from the community and with a generous gift provided by Andrew Carnegie Sterling was able to have a public library. The first librarian was Katherine Marvin.
.....Sterling Public Library is a part of the City of Sterling. The library is funded through the City’s general fund. Sterling Public Library was started to provide reading materials to the community.
.....In 1953 the public library and Logan County Library were combined. The library remained in the Carnegie Building on the corner of South 4th and Ash Streets until moving to the current location of 420 N. 5th St. The current building was dedicated on Aug. 1, 1976. On April 1, 2010 ground was broke for a new addition of 5,478 sq. ft. The addition and complete renovation of Sterling Public Library was completed in February 2011.
.....Sterling Public Library is no longer just a place to borrow books. The library offers various forms of technology. Sterling Public Library provides downloadable books, audios and magazines for all ages through Overdrive. Computers are available for use by all. Wireless printing is also available. There are special devices such as Playaway Views and Launch Pads available for children.
... Library Director is Sandy VanDusen.
...Under normal circumstances the library offers a wide range of programs. One of our most popular programs is Story Time. Denise Ladd and Connie Chambers have a great time introducing early literacy to children. Erica Kallsen provides programming for teens. Some of these programs have involved cooking, art, movies and much more. We also provide informational programs such as medical or financial information and entertaining programs such as our annual teas for adults.
.....Each year during the summer the library provides a Summer Reading Program. It has been found through numerous studies that reading for pleasure during the summer helps kids maintain skills for the next year. During the summer the program provides incentives for reading and most summers many educational and entertaining programs are offered as a part of the program.
.....Sterling Public Library also provides several annual programs.
.....Santa City is provided with the Recreation Division for kids of all ages. Kids are able to have their picture taken with Santa, complete a craft, enter a coloring contest, draw for a prize, watch Christmas movies and enjoy refreshments.
.....The Library also holds the Parade of Trees each year. Community members help decorate trees and an Open House is held where all the lights are turned down to enjoy the sparkle of the trees. Live music and refreshments are provided throughout the evening.
.....The library is involved with a Growing Readers Together grant. Through the grant the library is working to reach informal and unlicensed care providers who care for children under age 6. Denise Ladd provides information and resources about early literacy and how you can help children in your care learn and grow. Through the grant the library will also have wonderful educational materials in the library for children to enjoy as soon as conditions allow.
...The library holds an annual Quilt Show in March. Quilters and those who own quilts graciously display their pieces to share with the community.
.....The library continually purchases new books for all ages. However, we cannot possibly purchase everything. For those items we do not have and you wish to use, the library provides Interlibrary Loan. .....Dorothy Schreyer processes ILL requests to help you obtain what you need.
Vickie Wettstein, Tish Ramos and Megan Riveria-Howard are also available to help you in the library. This group provides great support in making the programs happen.
.....The Sterling Public Library staff are all here to serve you with a combined 142 years of service and experience serving you.

 Join us in congratulating the
Sterling Public
as the Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Week.
