Books for Babies

Books for Babies, in partnership with the Rapid City Regional Hospital Foundation with cooperation from the Children’s Miracle Network, provides new parents with a "My First Library Card Pack" that includes a gift certificate to the bookstore in the downtown library, as well as information about no-cost programs promoting early literacy offered by the Rapid City Public Library. Literacy begins at home, well before children start school, and parental involvement in early literacy has been shown to effect a child's school rediness, academic performance, and social and emotional development. Approximately 170 babies are born at Rapid City Regional Hospital every month.
