You can now sign your baby up for a library card at the same time as you register their birth?
Bradford and Keighley Register offices can now issue the new library cards and a special photo booth session is available for families to mark the occasion!
Libraries have books especially tailored for babies and young children including picture books, touch ‘n’ feel books, board books, dual language picture books and large print braille picture books.
Libraries are also great places for new parents giving the opportunity to get out and about and meet with other new mums and dads, and to build support networks.
For more information about libraries across the district and to find one near you visit the Bradford Libraries website
Bookstart gives a free book pack to every baby born in England once they become members of the library. Bookstart also offers further packs at key stages before school, as well as packs for children with additional needs, tips and guidance on reading together, resources, activities, and much more!
Contact your health visitor or your library for more information.
