Beginning March 1, the city of Sterling Heights is hosting a month-long series of events at the public library in celebration of March is Reading Month, a time meant to motivate Americans of all ages to read every day.
“Reading has so many benefits, regardless of your age,” said Sterling Heights Mayor Michael Taylor. “It can help improve brain function, memory and vocabulary, and it can even help you reduce stress. Simply put, it’s good for everyone.”
Events and activities scheduled at the public library include:
“In an effort to promote inclusivity, the Sterling Heights Public Library has many different ways residents can engage with books,” said Library Director Tammy Turgeon. “There are traditional printed books, large print books, E-books and even audio books. Digital audio books allow users to listen on the go, and screen readers and page turners can help individuals with visual or physical limitations. These different technologies can help everyone access books.”
