Is there a cost to enroll in this program?

No, this program is a free gift to your child and you will never receive a bill for the books. All we hope for is that you will read to your child every day.

When will my child receive books?

After registering, the first book takes about eight to ten weeks to arrive at your home and then you will receive a new book each month until your child turns five. With the arrival of the first book, the classic The Little Engine That Could, your child will experience the joy of finding his/her very own book in the mailbox. The last Imagination Library book, Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come, will be mailed to your child during the month he or she turns five. Just imagine: If you enroll when your child is first born, by age five your child will have received 60 Imagination Library books!
