Baby's First Library Card

The Library has a new library card especially for newborns, babies and toddlers under 3 years old. The Library designed the new card as a reminder to parents that early literacy skills begin at birth. Customers who sign up their babies for the new card will receive a free board book.

“Libraries have a long-standing tradition as the place where children first discover the joy of reading. Our new library card emphasizes this critical role in children’s development and reminds parents that it’s never too early to start building those early literacy skills,” said Laurel Prysiazny, Fresno County Librarian.
