Library Programs

Books for Babies

The "Books for Babies" program assists carers in developing reading and communication skills in a manner that is fun for everyone concerned. It's our way of supporting the "Spread the Word" initiative originally introduced by Lithgow Learning City.

Lithgow Library Learning Centre in conjunction with Lithgow Community Health distribute a book kit to all new mothers while they are accommodated at the hospital's (Private and Public) maternity sections.

The kit contains information and resources aimed at sharing many wonderful hours introducing from birth the joys of communication. As well as a complimentary story book and reusable library bag, the kit contains suggestions on ways to best utilise time to encourage a love of reading.

Any new mothers who may have been overlooked during the distribution process are most welcome to visit the Lithgow Library Learning Centre where we will present them with a "Books for Babies Reading Pack".

The Books for Babies principle will be reinforced during baby's 18 months immunisation clinic, where mothers will be presented with a second instalment of the kit, compliments of Centrelink.
