Preschool Storytime For 2 through 6-Year-Olds
Join us at the Sullivan County Public Library for play-based preschool storytime that includes 30 minutes of action rhymes, songs, books and stories, followed by 30 minutes at play-based learning stations, including crafts, sensory tubs, music, puppets and dramatic play.
Some of these activities will be messy, so please dress your child appropriately. The library will provide smocks. Also, because there will be multiple stations where children may need help, parents and caregivers will need to actively participate in the program.
Every Thursday at 10:30 am
