Burlington Library Association
It is never too early to start exposing a child to the joy of books.
BLA Board member Dawn Markelon began this program in December 2000,
materials purchased from the Friends of Libraries USA along with a packet
of early reading materials. Besides a
new hardboard book, the bag includes a bookmark with a list of books babies
will enjoy, a magnetic picture frame, and
pamphlets with ideas on how to stimulate young children to read. A wealth of
suggestions on how and when to
find the time to read to a child is also included. To date, approximately
50 bags have been distributed.
