Books for Babies
The Amherst Public Library has participated in Books for Babies since 1998. This initiative is supported by United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association. This year we have handed out over 100 bags that include a book and other materials emphasizing early literacy and the importance of initiating your newest family member into our library family.
It has been a busy year and we just ordered another lot of 100 bags to make sure we have plenty to welcome our newest readers. Look for photos of new babies posted in the Childrens Department.
