Books for Babies
Books for babies is a program started by the Friends of the Library to introduce new parents to the Mediapolis Public Library. Parents, grandparents, relatives, and friends may contact the library when a new baby has been welcomed into the family. (by birth or adoption) Friends of the Library will place a new children's board book in the library in honor of the child's arrival.
How to Enroll
To "enroll" a new baby, just call the library at 394-3895, email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out the online Books for Babies form. The information needed is: Name of the new baby, date of birth, boy/girl, parent's names and address, and the person's name that is submitting the information.
The Friends of the Library will purchase a new book and add a book plate to it, then the library staff will send a letter to the parents informing them of the book that has been added to the library and to invite them to come to the library to "check it out".
