Babypalooza Partner Application

Applications for Babypalooza partners are now closed. Thank you to all who applied.

The ultimate baby party is back! Caregivers are invited to bring their babies to the John M. Harper Branch for an exciting morning with other parents, caregivers, and community experts.

Our Babypalooza 2024 will take place on Thursday, February 29 from 10am to 12 pm at our John M. Harper Branch. This event is aimed at parents and caregivers of children from birth to 18 months. Partners can expect to be onsite for about 3 hours. 

On the day of the event, participants can visit library staff to sign their child up for a library card, seek advice or services from experts at exhibit style tables, and take part in 20-minute breakout sessions held in the library lounge (including a storytime with library staff). 

Babypalooza is an opportunity for connection and engagement, and we couldn’t do that without you, our community experts. We’re looking for partners that:

  • Provide reputable resources to help children from birth to 18 months and their caregivers thrive 
  • Represent Waterloo’s diverse community and promote equity, access, and inclusion through their services 
  • Are ready to engage with participants in an exhibit style format 

Successful Babypalooza partner applicants will be featured on our website and in promotional marketing. At the event, we’ll provide you with a table to engage with visitors and you may be selected to host a 20-minute breakout session (if you share interest in your application).
