MONTICELLO  — The Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library has announced its programs for the month of October.

• Thursday, October 6, at 6 p.m., “Cimarron City, A Theme Park” a program narrated by Myron Gittell. A Wild West Town came to Monticello around 1960.

If you want to learn more about this amazing attraction, attend this program on the history of Cimarron City. Bring your memories and memorabilia. This program will be held inside in the Robert D. Norris Community Room. Registration is required. Go to ebcpl.org and then to Adult Calendar.

• Thursday, October 13 at 6 p.m. “After the Fall: Life After Sullivan County’s Golden Age” – Historian John Conway presents an exciting new program. After his nearly 30 years as the official Sullivan County historian, John Conway’s timeline depicting the evolution of the Sullivan County resort industry is well known to many, and concepts such as the Silver Age and the Golden Age have entered the mainstream vernacular. But what happened in the county after the Golden Age ended? Conway examines and explains that time period, including the airport, proposed convention centers, and music festivals real and imagined. This program will be held inside in the Robert D. Norris Community Room. Registration is required. Go to ebcpl.org and then to Adult Calendar. Masking and social distancing are strongly recommended. 

• Thursday, October 27, 6 p.m. “Native Wildflower Seeds” presented by Pamela Golben at the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library in Monticello. Learn all about seeds at this Native Wildflower Workshop. Learn the basics for collecting, storing and planting seeds from our native wildflowers. We will identify six different native plants and the benefits they provide to the local ecosystem. Learn how to remove seeds from dry seed heads and how to properly store them. We will also demonstrate seed sowing techniques for native seeds. Take home some seeds for your own garden! 

Pam is a local naturalist, environmental educator and owner of Golben Farms, a small nursery specializing in native plants. She is also the Senior Educator at the Mamakating Environmental Education Center, and lectures at local libraries and other venues. This program will be held inside in the Robert D.
