Tennessee First Lady Crissy Haslam and the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation (GBBF)celebrated the launch of newborn enrollment partnerships with Takoma Regional Hospital and Laughlin Memorial Hospital in Greene County on Thursday.

This initiative will introduce Tennessee’s Imagination Library program to parents and families of newborns and emphasize the joys and benefits of reading with children beginning at birth.
