Hillhead Housing Association is launching a new and exciting scheme called the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The scheme is being sponsored by the association repairs contractor Rodgers & Johnston Ltd.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a 60 volume set of books beginning with the children’s classic The Tale of Peter Rabbit for children aged 0-5 years old. Each month a new, carefully selected book will arrive by mail in your child’s name and be delivered directly to your home. Best of all it is free. There is no cost or obligation to your family.

Since launching in 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has become the preeminent early childhood book gifting program in the world. The flagship program of The Dollywood Foundation has gifted well over 150 million free books in Australia, Canada, The Republic of Ireland, United Kingdom and the United States. The Imagination Library mails more than 1.8 million high-quality, age-appropriate books each month to registered children from birth to age five.

Dolly envisioned creating a lifelong love of reading, inspiring them to dream. The impact of the program has been widely researched and results suggest positive increases in key early childhood literacy metrics. Penguin Random House UK is the exclusive publisher for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. For more information, please visit
