CORNING, N.Y. (January 4, 2016) – The Rockwell Museum presents Story Time in The Lodge with the Southeast Steuben County Library. On the first Thursday of each month, Children’s Librarian Sue McConnell will read stories linked to The Rockwell’s collection and special exhibitions.

Attendees are invited to explore the galleries after story time for free, including a visit to the hands-on Family Exploration Studio. New Art Hunts and gallery activities for youth are created each month in connection with the book theme, and are also available at no charge.
