Books to be dedicated to babies in Bristol

BRISTOL — The Lawrence Memorial Library is celebrating its eighth year of the “Books for Babies” program, in which a new picture book is dedicated to each baby/toddler born to a family in Bristol in the previous year. Thanks to joint funding support from the (now retired) Bristol Outlook Club and Wells Mountain Foundation, the library was able to purchase books for all 39 babies born during 2012. Families may come in and select one of the 39 books to receive a bookplate bearing their child’s name.
To celebrate the occasion of the book dedication, families and friends are invited to a reception on Saturday, March9, from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the library’s Children’s Room downstairs. It has become a fun occasion to meet other families and their babies and enjoy conversation and refreshments while getting acquainted. The collection of new books, purchased for this occasion, will be on display available for borrowing.
Anyone unable to attend the reception on March 9 can visit the library some other time soon to check out the books on display. All of the dedicated “Books for Babies” will be on reserve for their respective babies at the library for the month of March. Those who have not yet visited the library can register then and find out about the many programs and services offered.
The event is also an opportunity to sign up for the Imagination Library. Participating children in Addison County will receive a free picture book in the mail every month until they turn five. The program is sponsored by Addison County Readers Inc. and is free of charge to families. To find out more visit addisoncountyreaders.org or ask at the library.
