Books for Babies

The Mountainside Public Library invites Parents of newborns living in Mountainside to pick up a "Books for Babies" bag expressly created for the youngest members of the community and their families. 

The purpose of the bags is simple: to introduce the joy and importance of reading to new parents and to encourage them to visit the library as a family. We also offer Cuddle and Family Story Times for the youngest member of your family.

Each free handy canvas bag contains:
