Babies love books and libraries love babies

Buckinghamshire Libraries are working together with registrars to promote the Bookstart scheme, which is being run nationally by BookTrust.

Bookstart aims to foster a lifelong love of books and to deliver free books to babies via the Bookstart pack.

Your registrar should gift this purple bag in your baby's first year to help you share stories, rhymes and songs.
