Program: A Birth, a Book, a Tree, a Healthy Environment

What this program offers

Moms and dads of babies under one-year-old  are invited to sign up for the library’s free baby reading kit containing a book, reading suggestions, and other great surprises. As a bonus, parents can also select a tree (or have one planted in a city park) or a grant of up to $100 for the purchase of cloth diapers.

In order to participate in this program, parents of a newborn or adopted baby (within the last year) are invited to fill out the program form at Deux-Montagnes’ Library at 200 Henri-Durant Street.  Proof of residency and birth certificates are required.

⇒ The child must be registered at the library for those benefits. For more information about how to be a library member, click here.

”Tree” option

Parents who prefer the  “tree” option to ”reusable diapers” option  must choose between receiving a free tree  (which they can plant themselves on their private land located in Deux-Montagnes) or having it plant in the name of the child by the City of Deux-Montagnes in one of the municipal parks.

The  Tree Selection  document (PDF) can be consulted to help parents choosing their tree.


”Reusable diapers” option

Reusable diapers are less polluting and are made from natural materials. Their use reduces the burial of disposable diapers: an ecological and economical choice. The grant will be awarded upon presentation of a proof of purchase.
