Free Book Sign Up

Your child can be signed up to receive a free book every month until they turn 5 years old. In fact, you can sign your child up on the day they are born and receive 60 FREE age-appropriate, fun books by their 5th birthday. Popular books similar and sometimes even the same as those we sent out could be over $10 each at your local book store. Please take advantage of this wonderful early-literacy program! If you feel you could afford the books as a family but still want your child to feel the excitement of receiving a book of their very own in the mail every month, please consider donating $25 to the Lowndes County Imagination Library. This amount roughly covers our operating cost of sending one child twelve books over the course of the year; it's still much more inexpensive than 12 books from the bookstore and a great investment in your community.  

To sign up, please click the button to the right, scroll down on the imagination library page, and follow through with online registration.
