As part of its mission to support families, Vernon Area Public Library invites new and expecting parents to two events in April:
Raising a Baby: Spark Talks on Thursday, April 13, is an online, at-home evening for packed with fast and valuable insight from local experts. Families are invited to log into Zoom for a variety of talks around 5 minutes each. Topics range from delivery to infant sleep, feeding, speech development, navigating daycare, and more.
Bump to Baby Expo on Saturday, April 15, is a great opportunity for new and soon-to-be parents to connect with local services and networking groups.
Attendees can browse booths from more than two dozen local organizations and vendors and pick up information about their products and services. Participating businesses include pediatricians, day care centers, wellness services, and experts in sleep, speech-language pathology, breastfeeding, and more. Baby-wearing experts will be on site for in-person adjustments and the ability to try out different styles. Free samples, giveaways and raffles for baby gear and gift certificates round out the offerings.
While at the library, families are invited to explore the children’s area, meet the library’s early learning team, pick up a schedule of storytimes and sign up for a library card.
Librarian Kelsey Cole-Burns, one of the event coordinators, hopes that attendees not only find useful business information, but also realize their library is “a home away from home where parents can take their babies to learn, play and meet others in the community.”
Bump to Baby Expo takes place at the library at 300 Olde Half Day Road, Lincolnshire. The event is free and open to the public. Signup is not required. Drop in anytime during Expo hours, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
