Ella Wilson, of Altrusa Queenstown, passed brightly wrapped books to Plunket community Karitane nurse Madelin Lawn, and these were distributed to the babies' families recently.
Ms Wilson said Altrusa, which has about 20 members, gave books every year to babies born during Literacy Month and funding for the books came from a catering function.
Altrusa also gave $5000 to Queenstown Plunket's newly renovated outdoor area, including a large all-weather sandpit, artificial turf and outdoor toys.
Plans had begun for Altrusa's annual golf tournament, a major fundraiser, to be held on January 13.
