Story Time in the Park: Books & Crafts List

It’s that time of year again!  We’ll soon be headed to our local park with books, glue sticks, and construction paper in tow.  It’s Story Time in thePark!

If you’re in the Erie, PA area, be sure to stop in at Whitford Park every Monday morning through the summer for our Story Time in the Park program.  There will be songs, books, and crafts for the little ones. Everyone is welcome to attend (with a parent), but ages 3-6 will especially enjoy the program.
