  Baby Box
The Butler Library is 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 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:  www.babyboxuniversity.com
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 Baby Box University to Butler Public Library and collect your Baby Box.  That’s it! Just stop in and ask for Ms. Kristen, Ms. Arlene, Ms. Lisa, Ms. Margaret, Ms. Carolyn, Ms. Jennifer, Ms. Jenna, or Mr. Rodriquez before picking up your Baby Box.
Congratulations on the birth of your little one, and welcome to the Baby Box Family!

Email info@babyboxuniversity.com for support if you have any trouble with the Baby Box University process.
