Pathways for Children is a proud partner of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Working together, we are helping children on Cape Ann develop early literacy skills and develop a life-long passion for reading.
All children, from birth to 5 years old, who live in Gloucester, Essex, Rockport, and Manchester-by-the-Sea are eligible to participate. There is NO COST to parents – and there are no income requirements. This is truly a gift from us to your family.
Children who register will receive a new book every month mailed to their home. Every book is age-appropriate and hand-selected by the Imagination Library team. The littlest children receive board books to withstand the toughest teethers. While older children receive books that explore the larger world, such as the award-winning “Last Stop on Market Street” about the special bond between a boy and his grandmother and their adventures through the city. View the full 2021 book list – including books in Spanish.
Children can be registered anytime before their fifth birthday, and multiple children at each home can be enrolled. Check the availability and sign up above. We look forward to helping you build your library for a life of learning.
