Providing Supplies and Informational
Books to Expectant Parents

Parent Packs and Beyond is a joint project with Daniel Boone Regional Library. This program has been in existence since 1996. It provides preassembled kits in English and Spanish that are loaned to expectant parents.

The kit contains books on:

• pregnancy
• fetal development
• childbirth
• baby names
• nutrition and recipes

The kit for parents also includes:

• an exercise DVD for yoga, including a yoga strap and block
• information on community resources
• a set of plastic teething keys for the new baby

Between June 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021, 21 bags, valued at $1,200, were checked out from Daniel Boone Regional Library. One library staff member donated 8 hours to the program.
