Oaklawn Visual and Performing Arts Magnet School Jr. Beta Club students created “Betas, Books and Babies” as their community project, and made a special holiday book delivery this afternoon to the CHI Anthony Childbirth Center of 100+ books. They collected books for infants and toddlers from Jr. Beta members and OVPA students/staff to be distributed at no charge to families with newborn babies. They created a special OVPA Jr. Beta Club label and information about reading via a customized bookmark placed inside each book. Bookmarks stress the importance of reading to children at every age, for all families. This effort goes hand-in-hand with the commitment of CHI to enroll each newborn with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program, which launches an entire reading journey for children until they are five years old (they receive one book per month). 


The OVPA Jr. Beta Club kids were warmly greeted by CHI Anthony Childbirth Center staff members today as they made their delivery. The student group listened to nurses and professionals talk about the importance of helping to educate new moms and dads about how to care for babies, and personally thanked the group for such a generous donation to the center.
