A message from the E.B. Crawford Library:

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. Spring Story times are underway now.

Story times take place 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; registration is not required. For more information or to register for story times, call the library children’s room at 845-794-4660 ext. 5, visit the library website: ebcpl.org, or follow the library on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the handle @ebcplibrary.
