Free Monthly Books for Children 0-5 Years in Allegan County

It sounds almost too simple to be true, but by reading regularly with your children during their preschool years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever get.

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library will help you read with your child.  There are many reasons parents do not read to their child, but we can eliminate one of them.  Every child will have books of their own, at no cost to you, thanks to Allegan County United Way and Volunteer Center and Dolly Parton.

Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed  in your child's name directly to your home.  He/she can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library until he/she turns Five Years old as long as you remain a resident of Allegan County. Should the child move outside Allegan County, he/she automatically exits the program.     

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a FREE GIFT to our children! All you have to do is read to your children.
