Book Babies Photo Shoot

Date: 
05/04/2017 9:30 AM

We believe it’s never too early for children to build a relationship with reading. That’s why we’re partnering with Marcie Shorter of Shorter Shots Photography to capture photographs of babies posed with books on May 4. Interested in having your baby’s photo taken? Sign up for a 10 minute time slot between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. by calling the Children’s Department at (330) 688-3295 ext. 5. Space is limited. For babies 6-9 months old (approximately). Babies must be sitting up on their own, but not yet crawling or walking.
