We understand that families are busy and with everything that's going on in your lives, we know that you don't have time to sit down and plan out crafts or activities. We also understand that you might want your kids to have a break from the screens. We want to help you out! During the summer of 2020 we started having a new craft available outside the library that you could take home and work on in your own time. Due to overwhelming popularity, we have decided to continue this! Every week features new crafts and activities. We provide almost everything you'll need to complete the craft, including directions and most materials. You'll just need simple things like scissors, glue or tape and markers or crayons. That's it! Stop by the library entryway and pick up the latest kit today!
Monticello Public Library has created a website for kids and families with free games, activities and more. It is a great supplement for what kids are doing in the classroom. All of the links are completely free and don't require any sign-up information. They also align to the common core standards in education. This site has resources for kids from prek-12th grade that feature kid safe search sites (for homework or research), games and activities for literacy, science, math, social studies and physical education; virtual field trips, podcasts and more. We would love for you to check this out and share it with friends and families!
