Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Dolly Parton books

If you have a child who was born in 2016, 2017, 2018 or 2019, and you live in Southwark, you can make bedtime book time with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. Your child will receive a book in the post every month until their fifth birthday, absolutely free.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a free book scheme which launched in 1995. Southwark Council has joined forces with local company DialAFlight and the Dollywood Foundation to bring the scheme to our borough.

Only children with a current Southwark address can register. The system should recognise your postcode and offer address options to choose from to proceed; but if it doesn't and you're sure you live in Southwark, email your details to

This offer is only available to children born on or after Tuesday 1 December 2015. Children born before this date are not eligible for this scheme
