Imagination Library

Free books for children from birth to five years       

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a 60 volume set of books. It begins with the children’s classic 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' by Beatrix Potter. Each month a new, carefully selected book will be delivered to your home and addressed to your child. Best of all it is a free gift! There is no cost or obligation to your family.

These are just some of the parents' comments we have received about the Imagination Library programme: 

  • "My daughter loves the books, they are age appropriate and just the right length. We have a special Imagination Library bookshelf".
  • "I spend much more time reading with my children. I don’t think I would have looked at books as much if we didn’t get them sent directly to us". 
  • "My son now talks lots more because of the books. He loves explaining what he sees".
  • "It's great that they come through the door with their name on. Makes it extra special".
  • "The programme provides a wider range of books than parents might have considered buying".
  • "We would read anyway but she can't wait to open the books when they arrive".
