Resources and More

Babies First Books

Parents are their child’s first and most important teacher! And Babies First Books encourages families to read together! Ask a library staff member at any location for your free copy of Rock-A-Bye Baby Reader in English or ask for the book in Spanish.


These high-quality books contain rhymes and songs along with tips and information for the adult readers on how these activities positively affect their baby’s brain development.

Childcare providers and other professionals who work with families are welcome to request multiple copies by contacting our Kids & Families team.

Sign up for 1000 Books Before Kindergarten to keep the learning going.
