Library Baby Time

Continuing with my Activities with Babies series, another one is Baby Time at the library.

It’s a free program, once a week for 30 minutes; it continues for about 5 weeks, it is free – but you need to pre-register. Space is limited.


In essence, it is very similar to Ontario Early Yeats Centres, which I already talked about before. Moms with babies ages 0-18 months came together to get entertained with songs, nursery rhymes – and, of course, books. Which you can then check out, if you want!

If you haven’t done so yet, it’s a good way to start your baby getting used to – and, hopefully, fall in love with – books. They also share some CDs with songs and nursery rhymes that you can check out, too.


You can open a separate library card for your baby, from birth. There are limitations as to how many books you can check out at the same time, so having a separate card might help. Timothy and I check out board books frequently – MUCH cheaper than buying books!

And, from what I know, there are such baby library groups around the world; so even if you are not in Toronto, inquire about those! It’s yet another good reason to get out of the house with the baby – and a good entertainment for the baby.

Go to Toronto Public Library’s website and search for Baby Time program in your local library!

      Recently we stopped going because Timothy naps at this time. It’s been at least a month since we went to either library or early years program 😦
      But we both loved it!

      It’s funny, you know – he absolutely loves letters! We read books with him and if he points at something on the page, 9 times out of 10 it’s text! Is he gonna be a bookworm? 🙂
