End of chapter one for project.
The Babies Need Books project involves health visitors giving packs of books to parents during check-ups at nine months.
Launched in the town last May by health and library chiefs, the scheme has now been extended across the county and is sponsored nationally by supermarket giant Sainsbury's to the tune of pounds 6 million.
Project co-ordinator, Sandy Miller, said: "The project is going very well and we've had lots of positive feedback from health visitors and parents.
"We want to encourage children to read books from a young age, not just so they learn something but for the fun of it."
