Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Through Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, you will receive a new book for your child every month - for free!


Sign up before your child is four years old, and they will receive one free book per month until their fifth birthday!

Reading books with your child supports their development by improving their language and communication skills. Children who read regularly are better prepared to start school at age five.

The books are completely free for all 0-4s who live in an SSBC area. You can check if you live in an SSBC area by using the postcode checker at the bottom of this page.

To sign up, speak to your health vistor or contact the SSBC team - email 

Remember: you must sign up before your child's fourth birthday.

If you don't live in an SSBC area, you can still enjoy reading free books by visiting your local library. Your child can have their own library card from the day they are born - so it's never too early to start reading together!
