Library offers free story times for children


January 29, 2014

MONTICELLO, NY — The Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library has weekly story times for toddlers, ages 20 to 36 months, and preschoolers, ages three to four years.

Toddler story times are every Monday at 11 a.m. An early literacy program for babies, toddlers and their caregivers, the program uses rhymes, books, crafts and finger plays to develop skills that will help children get ready to read. Many activities require one-to-one adult/child interaction. Pre-K story times are every Friday at 11 a.m. This program will continue to develop early literacy skills with stories and crafts.

Story times are free, but registration is requested. Walk-ins will be accepted if space permits. The library children’s room can be reached at 845/794-4660, ext. 5.
