MILLTOWN, NJ - With 2016 ending in a few days and January and 2017 just around the corner, it won't be long before the winter doldrums set in. However, the public library is often a great spot to keep the winter blues away. The Milltown Public Library offers year-round, free programs for both kids and adults.

On Mondays, the library has two story time programs available. Toddlers Story Time meets at 10:45 a.m.  and is for youngsters ages two through four. Toddlers+ Story Time meets at 11:30 a.m. and is for children ages three through five. A parent or caregiver needs to attend the Toddlers and Toddlers+ session with the child.

On Wednesdays, a Lapsit Story Time for children under two meets at 10:45 a.m. There is an All Ages Story Time at 11:30 a.m. A parent or caregiver needs to attend these sessions with the child as well. All ages are also welcome to attend the library's After School Crafts program.
