International Language Collection

Approximately 8 years ago, the Sterling Heights Public Library began its own foreign language collection. Its purpose is to service the diverse ethnic communities and many foreign language programs in the area. Generous donations by patrons, staff members, and our own Friends of the Library have allowed the collection to continue to grow. The collection is located on the second floor of the library and includes books as well as magazines.
