About the Read to Baby Program

Results from UBC’s Human Early Learning Partnership (H.E.L.P) shows that 34% of Surrey’s children entering Kindergarten are not ready to learn. Read to Baby (R2B) is a family literacy initiative launched by Surrey Libraries in 2014 to respond to this urgent need in our community. It introduces parents of newborns to the benefits of early and frequent reading to infants, all provided in a beautiful keepsake kit.

The kit features a baby board book, music CD, information to teach parents how to build the pre-literacy skills a baby needs, and information on the FREE services available at libraries.
