Join us every Friday in person for story time and crafts! Each class includes a special Little New-Yorkers hello song, silly dances and games, a story book reading, and a craft to do at home. With December comes the New-York Historical Society’s annual Holiday Express exhibition! We are loving all things locomotive this month, and our first book will be Jason Carter Eaton’s How to Train a Train, with illustrations by John Rocco.

Maybe you already know how to take care of a dog or a cat, but what about a train? We will learn all the most important train training tips and tricks and, after the story, make our very own conductor’s hat!

Please note that this is not a drop-off program—child participants must be accompanied by an adult. This program will take place in person. Capacity limits, vaccination proof plus matching ID (for those ages 12 and up), and mask requirements apply. Please find all our safety information here.
