Holiday storytime is Tuesday
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Holiday fun continues at the Monroe Public Library when Youth Services Librarian, Kris Ault, presents Kris and Kringle, a special holiday storytime at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 16. The program is free and no registration is required.

Ault will share stories and rhymes of the season and lend a hand to Kringle, Santa's right-hand elf. Kringle will bring us up-to-date on the latest news from the North Pole, an update on Rudolph's sniffles and the missing sleigh bells. Can Santa possibly be ready to fly on Christmas Eve without those magic bells?

The Jolly Old Elf, Santa himself, will stop by after stories at 7 p.m. He will be happy to take those last minute requests and pick up any letters left by those who can't attend. Just leave your letters with Miss Kris at the Children's Room desk or put them in the special mailbox inside the Monroe Post Office.

Picture Book Stories and Toddler Time continue through Dec. 18. Themes for Picture Book Stories for the preschool age include Snowflakes at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 18. Toddler Time, a learning to listen story program for children 18 months to 3 years old, will meet once more before the holidays. The theme will be Time for Trees at 10 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 15. There is no charge for any of these programs and registration is not necessary. Siblings are welcome to all story programs. Both story programs will resume their weekly schedule beginning the week of Jan. 5.
