Ready to Read Baby Board Books

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 in Ottawa has a head start by providing them with a coupon for a coupon for a free Ready to Read Baby Board Book.

If you’ve received your coupon, bring your baby to the library to get their free book and their first library card. If you haven’t received a coupon, please visit your closest branch to pick up your free board book on the spot!

Here are some tips that will help develop your baby’s pre-reading skills.
