Libraries have a lot to offer

Libraries are a free source of wonderful learning materials and now, in Australia and many other countries, they are a way for parents of young children to connect and learn.

You can borrow great baby books, for free, from your local library and there is usually a specific section of board books which are the absolute best for babies.

This means you can have lots of books in your home for your baby to explore and you can change books regularly. If one or two become favourites then you know which ones to purchase or request for birthday gifts.

Did you know that your library stocks CD's specifically for children, such as relaxing Baby Einstein or upbeat Wiggles, audio books, books in other languages and dual-language books?

Libraries also often offer story times and lapsit programs where baby sits on the parent's lap for songs and music and storytime. These sessions are a great way to learn some rhymes you can sing to your baby and meet other parents with babies who live in your area.
