Do you have a young child or children in your home who are just starting their lifelong adventure with books? I found it difficult during the stay-at-home order and after to browse board books for my child and find what he likes when I couldn’t actually bring him into the bookstore or library. After reserving lots of books and showing him at home, I made a couple lists of great books that you can reserve for your infant/toddler.
This first list is books with real baby pictures, which my one year old loves right now! It is super hard to search the catalog for that feature, so here is a list of all our board books with real baby photos. You can put any of these titles on hold using our website and pick them up at any of the branches (East Helena, Capitol, Lincoln, Augusta, or the Bookmobile). If you don’t want to bring your baby or children in to pick up the hold, just call the library from the parking area and we can bring them out to you.
You can also call and ask us to pick out a few board books or picture books if you don’t have time to browse the catalog and make the holds. We would be happy to help you get books for your kids based on their interests or age.
