Books for Babies is an initiative started by Barb Potter at Kinney Memorial Library in Hartwick. Several libraries in the county have joined forces to support her. The plan is to give every baby born in 2018 at Bassett Hospital a book bag filled with a board book, library card application and information about library services. Since about 1,000 babies are expected to be born next year, that means 1,000 bags will need to be made. Some dedicated quilters have offered to make bags but more help is needed. If anyone is interested in helping, contact Tina at 432-1980 or Barb at 293-6600.
