Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library offers free story time for children


The Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library has weekly story times for all ages.

Toddler Time is every Monday at 10 a.m. It is an Early Literacy Program for toddlers and their caregivers. This 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 10:30 a.m. This program will continue to develop early literacy skills with stories and crafts.

Evening Stories is held every-other Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. This story time is for children and parents, and uses stories, games, and activities to build literacy and social skills. Upcoming Evening Stories sessions will be held on May 3, 17 and 31.
All storytimes are free and open to the public. Registration is requested, but walk-ins will be accepted if space and supplies permit.

The Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library is located at 479 Broadway in Monticello.
