New Parent Programs


The Baby Box Program

The Baby Box Company is now at Butler Public Library. We are proud to announce that the Butler Public Library is now a Baby Box Distribution Center. Baby Boxes are inspired by the maternity packages given to all expectant mothers in Finland. They double as a baby starter kit and a safe sleep space for infants. They are an initiative that is new to the United States in an effort to equip all expecting families with vital parenting education and resources. The boxes themselves are free to all expectant mothers through the Baby Box University and include new parent essentials such as diapers, breast pads and more.

To claim your free baby box, register at:

Log on and watch a 10-15 minute training course for your region, after taking a quiz, you will receive a certificate of completion. Print it out or take a screenshot and
bring the certificate and the email address you used on The Baby Box Company to Butler Public Library and collect your Baby Box. That’s it!

Congratulations on the birth of your little one, and welcome to the Baby Box Family!

Email for support if you have any trouble with The Baby Box Company process.



We love signing everyone up for programs, but it saddens us when someone does not show up for the program on the day of the event. We spend a lot of time planning and
setting up programs for everyone and would like a courtesy call if your plans change. We can then call others who are on the waiting list and give them an opportunity to join us.

Thank you!
