You're probably wondering what the catch is, right? Well, there isn't one! Thanks to Dolly Parton's Imagination Library and Shelby County's Books from Birth every child in Shelby County is eligible to receive a total of 60 books right from birth, completely free of charge. The books are chosen by Dolly Parton and a team of educators so that they are each age appropriate and fun to read.
Dolly's program began in East Tennessee's Sevier County in 1995 and it didn't take her long to realize that her Imagination Library could benefit not just the state of Tennessee but the entire country, in any area that could support it financially. Shelby County's Books from Birth (and those who support the program philanthropically) makes this possible in our neck of the woods – it is easy to sign up if you haven't already.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up today! You can do so from the Shelby County Books from Birth's website here: booksfrombirth.org/enroll-a-child/. You can also visit their facebook page or learn more about the history of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.
Happy reading to all of our Pediatric Consultants children!
