bonding with baby

 A collaboration between AHS Public Health, the Fairview Public Library and Fairview FCSS. Together, these organizations have been providing 70 baby bags annually to new parents in Fairview for over 10 years.

The program is meant to nurture and strengthen the bond between newborns and new parents, building stronger families and healthier communities. This is achieved by providing parents with the tools and encouragement to read together with their new baby. 

The bags contain baby books, community resources, baby’s first library card, and some items just for fun.
