Books for Babies

Books for Babies programme

Mum and baby reading together. Auckland Libraries works in partnership with the Storytime Foundation, Plunket, Health Boards and other health professionals to deliver Books for Babies, a programme that provides new books to families with infants.

Books for Babies supports families to bond with their children through reading together daily.

Families are referred to the Books for Babies programme by their primary health professional, and once registered they receive five brand new books over 15 months as well as reading support and encouragement from their visiting health professional.

Books are available in English, Māori, Tongan, Samoan, Niue, Cook Island Māori, Fijian, Tokelau and Chinese.

The health professional helps the family to join the library, and our librarians take it from there.
