Free Books for Children Ages Birth to 5
Thanks to funding from the NC Legislature and local partners, Chatham County children ages birth until their 5th birthday can receive a new book in the mail each month at no cost to the family. Please be sure to register your child at least 10 weeks before his/her 5th birthday so that books can be delivered before the child turns 5.
More on the program
Smart Start and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library are working together to get books into the hands of North Carolina’s youngest children.
In 2017, North Carolina’s state lawmakers included $3.5 million in the first year and $7 million in the second year of the state budget for Smart Start to administer Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library across North Carolina.
