This is pretty great – from DC Public Library:
“Even at an early age, reading to young children is the best thing you can do to put them on a path to success. Your kids pick up new words, have fun while they learn, and develop skills they will need later in school.
DC Public Library wants to make reading with your child fun and easy. That’s why the Library is launching Books from Birth, a program that mails all enrolled kids in D.C. a free book each month from birth until they turn five.
Parents. You must register for this program in order to receive free books for your child. REGISTER HERE.
Registration is now open to parents and caregivers. Books from Birth will officially launch in early February with an announcement from Mayor Bowser and the DC Council. More details on the program will be released at that time.
