Baby Books 10th Year

Baby books

10 years and thousands of books later the Baby Book program at the Moruya Hospital is still going strong.

PP Steve Young (2005/06) started this literacy program whereby newborn babies receive a book from the 3 Rotary Club's - Batemans Bay, Narooma and our club. It is hoped that the baby and any siblings will be read to by a parent instilling the importance of books and reading.  Unfortunately over the 10 years period only a handful of families have written to thank Rotary for their book.
