A child’s first years are chocked full of exciting firsts. First smiles, first steps and first words are just a few of the big milestones in a baby’s development. The Moorestown Library wants to encourage parents to add one more first to your baby’s list of accomplishments: baby’s first library card.
At the , we believe that it is never too early to get your child a library card and set him on course for a lifelong love of reading. To drive that point home, beginning on Monday, July 11, the library is offering a gift bag to every child under the age of 2 who gets a library card, while supplies last. The gift bag includes a board book, a T-shirt or onesie featuring our “Read to Me at the Moorestown Library” logo, a magnetic picture frame and information about reading to babies.
The “Read to Me” project is sponsored by the Friends of the Moorestown Library, and coincides with another exciting initiative for young children, Baby Story Time. From July 11 through August 15, children under 2, along with their parents, caregivers and siblings, are invited to join us each Monday morning at 9:30 for a short story time featuring simple books, nursery rhymes, puppets and music. Afterwards, participants can enjoy an informal play time together. There is no registration for Baby Story Time this summer; simply drop in to join the fun!
