Leo’s Library

We provide library’s to both the neonatal units at North Durham Hospital and Darlington Memorial Hospital.

We know the benefits of reading to babies on the neonatal units, so we provide an array of wonderful books for parents, grandparents and siblings to read to baby.

We also provide Leo’s Library Cards to both units for families to write about the books they’ve read and when they’ve read it.
