Books for Babies

Reading is a Superpower

​“Books for Babies” is a Friends of the Library supported initiative to enhance the Clifton Park Halfmoon Public Library’s celebration of National Children’s Book Week. It is offered twice annually, in May and November.

As part of an effort to encourage children to read and/or be read to at an early age, the Friends provide a special complimentary gift packet to parents and grandparents of infants up to six months of age. The gift packet contains, among other materials, a children’s board book, library card application, nutritional information and tips on reading.

If you are a Library District parent or grandparent of a newborn (up to six months old) please stop at the Circulation Desk of the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library at 475 Moe Road and inquire about the packet.

The packets are available May 1-7 and November 4-10, 2024.

This wonderful celebration is supported by the Friends ​Outreach Services Committee.
