Sound too good to be true?  It’s not.  Your preschooler can receive a FREE book every month at ABSOLUTELY NO COST TO YOU.

The Literacy Council of Lancaster-Lebanon (a local 501c3 non-profit), in affiliation with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, wants to put books into the hands of your preschooler. When you sign up, your child will be registered for automatic delivery of a brand new book every month until his or her 5th birthday.

To be eligible, children must live in the 17520 zip code and be between the ages of birth and 5 years old.  The sooner you register your child, the more books he or she will receive.  There is NO CATCH.  You can get more information by visiting or by calling The Literacy Council at 717-295-5523.
