Free books for newborns, toddlers and preschoolers

We will mail your child an age appropriate book every month, from birth until they are 5 years old. The books are brand new and they are yours to keep. It’s all free to families living in postal codes starting with B2R, B2V, B2W, B2Z, B3E, B3G and also B0J 1N0, B0J 3A0, B0N 1V0.

The books are selected by an advisory panel of experts from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The books are fun, engaging and developmentally appropriate. Many are classics, beloved by parents and children alike.

Reading books to very young children is one of the best head starts you can give them. It exposes children to new words and language, and shows them that their parents value reading. That’s why we want every child in our community to have access to lots of great books.
