The Pulaski County Public Library recently donated books, so every child entering the world will get an early start on reading.
Copies of the book Little Blue Truck were presented to the staff at Pulaski Memorial Hospital. About 100 copies of the book were donated to the hospital. A book will be given as gifts to the families of newborn babies.
In addition to the book, parents will be provided with a brochure about early literacy and reading to children. The document includes information on how and when to read to babies, a timetable of what reaction changes to expect when reading books, and more books babies will enjoy.
The book presentation was made possible through donations to the library’s Gift Memorial Fund. The staff at the Pulaski County Public Library plan on continuing this program so every child born at Pulaski Memorial Hospital will have a foundation of learning.
