Kids enrolled in Caroline County Imagination Library receive a FREE book every month delivered right to their homes.

Every child receives carefully selected books that are appropriate for their age. The Dolly Parton Foundation does an excellent job of choosing high quality books by outstanding authors.

New books are selected each year, so if your family has multiple children participating in the program, you shouldn't receive any duplicated books.

Children of the same age all receive the same books each month. That means that when they arrive in Kindergarten, they will all have a shared experience of reading the same books.
