Sterling Public Library to show "The Bridge on the River Kwai" As Part of Northern Colorado Common Read
Sterling Public Library will be showing The Bridge on the River Kwai on October 2nd
at 7:00 p.m. The showing will kick off the events to celebrate the Northern Colorado
Common Read activities. As a part of this six week reading initiative centered around
the book Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand the library will be hosting many activities.
We encourage everyone in the community to read Unbroken and participate in the many
Unbroken is the story of Louis Zamperini. When the war began, the athlete became
an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight and time in Japanese
prisoner of war camps. We will provide the first book discussion of Unbroken on
October 9th at 7:00 p.m. Steve Cramer will lead the discussion. Steve has a huge interest
in the era and has read many other books on the topic.
Another part of the celebration includes our veterans. The library asks that any veteran
or family member bring in pictures of veterans to be displayed. Cheryl is working on
a program for Veteran’s Day and a part of the program will be the display of veteran’s
pictures. Pictures may be brought to the library now and will be displayed through Nov.
