Born To Read



Welcome to the Nassau Library System's Born to Read Website!

Libraries have seen an increase in demand for services from parents of babies. It can be argued that this is directly related to the recent developments in brain research of babies.

'Baby' is a broad term that can mean anything from newborn to toddler age. We have developed this website in order to help librarians define and decide who they want to serve and how they can do it. It is our hope that the information contained here will help you plan and implement a program that is age-appropriate for the audience you wish to serve.

We have sample programs, lists of resources (books & music) to use while planning your program, and links to websites that provide information on child development and the most recent research on brain development.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.
