Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library offers free weekly story times for children

Sept. 9, 2016

A message from the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library:

Swing by the new library at 479 Broadway, Monticello and enjoy a free story time! The Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library has weekly story times for toddlers and preschoolers. Fall story times will start Monday, Sept. 12.

Toddler Time is every Monday at 10:00 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 Time is every Friday at 10:30 a.m. This program will continue to develop early literacy skills with stories and crafts.

All story times are free and open to the public, and walk ins are always welcome. In case of inclement weather, story times will be cancelled if Monticello Central School District announces a closing or delayed opening, even if the library opens at our regular time.

For more information and updates, call the library children’s room at 845-794-4660 ext. 5, visit the library website,, or follow the library on social media.
