Please join us as we offer a new educational program to help Zion’s adults develop basic literacy and numeracy skills.
This new Learning Gym program is 100% FREE to the public and will take place each Thursday morning at the Zion-Benton Public Library, Meeting Room A from
Thursday, April 5th through Thursday, September 27th for a 6-month pilot program.
