Play Grow Read to Your Baby


Play Grow Read to Your Baby is a new KDL initiative that acquaints parents of newborns with the important role they play in the development of their children.  Working in partnership with Kent County First Steps, all first-time parents and parents 25 and younger in the KDL service area will be presented with a Play Grow Read to Your Baby bag.  The bag contains a board book, invitation for baby’s first library card, and a variety of materials with reading tips and early literacy information parents can begin to use immediately to foster learning in their young child. 

Distribution of the Play Grow Read to Your Baby bags will begin on July 19 through First Steps Welcome Home Baby program.  Bags will only be available through the First Steps program.

Play Grow Read to Your Baby is funded by the generous donors to the KDL Fund

    I was just wondering if this is only for KDL card holders?

  2. Janice (KDL) Says:

    Play Grow Read to Your Baby is available to families in the KDL service area regardless of whether they are a cardholder. The bags will be distributed to new parents by First Steps staff members through area hospitals. We hope that parents who receive these bags will ultimately obtain a KDL card so that they may access all of the wonderful resources the library has to offer.
