Parenting

It’s never too early to start reading to a child! Babies respond to and benefit from being read to right from the first days of life.

The Ottawa Public Library, in partnership with Ottawa Public Health, makes sure every baby born in Ottawa has a head start by providing them with a coupon for a free book. Whether or not you’ve received your coupon, visit your closest branch to pick up your free board book!

 

Join us for reading fun at the library!

Library programs include stories, activities, songs, puppets and rhymes. These programs are free and offered at branches throughout the city.
