WEEKLY STORY TIMES FOR CHILDREN AT MONTICELLO LIBRARY

Swing by the library at 479 Broadway in Monticello and enjoy a story time! The Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library has weekly story times for toddlers and preschoolers. Story times run in 10 week cycles. Our current cycle will continue until March 9th.

Story times are held every Monday at 10am and Friday at 11am. This is an early literacy program for little ones and their caregivers. This program uses rhymes, movement, songs, books, crafts, and music to develop skills that will help children develop the early literacy skills they will need when they begin to read. Story times are appropriate for ages 2-5. We also offer Baby Brain Time for younger children. For more information on any of our children’s programming visit our website at ebcpl.org.

All story times are free and open to the public. Walk-ins are always welcome and registration is not required. In case of inclement weather, story times will be cancelled if Monticello Central
