All Aboard! Storytime - at the Congers Train Station

Please come on down and join us for this new event!

                                                     

Join Mrs. B. for preschool storytime at the Congers Train Station.  Each child needs a carpet square or cushion for sitting on the floor.  Adults need to stay close at hand in case they are needed.  Restrooms are available, and there's plenty of parking.  About 25 children ages 3-5 will fit comfortably.  The storytime will last 30 minutes or so.
