Free Books for Kids Program
Gifting books to children is a simple but effective way to support the literacy development of our children and future leaders.
Free Books for Kids is a program that builds libraries in children’s homes. All you need is 20 books in the home to start making a positive impact on literacy and learning. The more books you add the greater the impact.
We distribute high-quality children’s books through Christmas Hampers in partnership with Food banks across PEI and the PEI Public Library Service.
We have distributed $12,000 books through these Christmas Hampers since 2010.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
This is a free book gifting program devoted to inspiring a love of reading in the hearts of children everywhere. Each month, more than 3000 children in PEI receive a high quality, age-appropriate book in the mail, free of charge until their fifth birthday.
We administer the Imagination Library program in PEI.
More than 80% of parents whose children are enrolled in the Imagination Library in PEI have reported:
- That they are more aware of the importance of early literacy
- That they are reading more as a family
- That their children ask to be read to more often
