Frequently Asked Questions
Can I register multiple children?
As long as each child is under the age of 5 and in the above zip codes, they are eligible for the program, regardless of the number of eligible children living in the same household. In order to register multiple children, simply complete and submit the online form once for each child or provide the representative at a designated in-person registration site with the appropriate information for each child. Please note that only a child’s parent or legal guardian may register them for the program.
How will my child receive their books?
Each month, children registered for the program will receive a new, free book in the mail at the home address with his or her name on the label. Books may arrive up until the last day of the month, and participating children living at the same address will likely not receive their books on the same day.
When will my child stop receiving books?
Children graduate from the program when they turn 5 years old and stop receiving books at that time. A child will also stop receiving books if they move to an address outside of the Chicago program coverage area. In the event that a child becomes ineligible for the program as a result of a move, it is possible to check whether the child’s new home address falls within the coverage area of another Dolly Parton Imagination Library affiliate. If this is the case, the child may be transferred from one program to another and continue receiving free books until the age of 5.
