Read to Me gives a bag of books and reading resources to every baby born in Nova Scotia, at the hospital bedside. If you were discharged from the hospital before receiving your bag, you can request one from us by clicking the button below.  

Due to the large number of requests, it may take longer than normal to receive your bag by mail. We are looking at faster, alternative ways for you to receive your bag. If you have submitted a request through our website, we will be in touch by email with information about how to pick up your baby’s bag of books. 

If you are located in Halifax, you can pick up your bag from our provincial office. Click here to learn how. Follow our Facebook page for information on our pick-up locations at libraries across Nova Scotia.

Reading to babies is like hugging them with words - author, Sheree Fitch
