Preschoolers dance for literacy during annual preschool prom

BETHLEHEM, N.Y. (NEWS10) –  In New York, the Bethlehem Public Library held its annual preschool prom.

The library’s youngest patrons were dressed to impress Thursday morning.

They celebrated the end of spring story times. Princesses, bowties, and ballerinas danced and pranced all in the name of the literacy.

“It’s a reminder that early literacy is about a lot more than just passive listening. It’s about singing and dancing and socializing with friends,” Kristen Roberts, Bethlehem Public Library, said.

The library’s story program is available multiple times per week and encourages kids to become life long readers.
