"You can never get enough books into the hands of enough children."
Pioneer Library System is proud to announce that we have partnered with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to bring this program to Cleveland, McClain, and Pottawatomie Counties. Imagination Library puts books into the hands of children under five, living in our service area, every month for FREE!
Each Imagination Library book is expertly selected, age-appropriate and personalized with your child’s name on the mailing label. Each month, a book will be delivered directly to your home for a special experience that will get your child excited about reading.
Ready to get started?
Step 1: Register
Parents must register each child under five in their family. Signing up online is the easiest and quickest way to enroll, or you may complete a bilingual paper registration form. Once you have registered, you should receive an email directly from Imagination Library confirming your acceptance into the program.
Step 2: Read
Reading with your child every day is one of the best ways to prepare them for success in school and life. Your child’s first book will arrive in 6-10 weeks. After the initial wait, your child will receive a book every month until they turn 5! Please keep in mind that PLS is not involved in the shipping process. All books are sent through the US Postal Service.
Step 3: Keep Your Address Updated
Parents must update their address each time they move. Books are not forwarded with the mail. Visit the online Parent Portal to update your profile.
If an email address was added to your child’s record upon registration, this will serve as your username. If you do not know your password, please request a new password using the New Password/Forgot Password link on the login page. If you require further assistance contact our Imagination Library team via email.
Thanks to a collaborative effort between Dolly Parton Imagination Library and Penguin Group, USA, an ever expanding collection of titles will be available as free downloadable children’s audio books and for those who prefer, there will be many titles available in braille from APH. These will be offered free-of-charge to eligible families and may be purchased at a low cost by all others. For more information, visit https://imaginationlibrary.com/usa/audio-braille/.
If your child is too old or does not live in our service area, there are still plenty of ways that you can use your local library to help your child become a better and more active reader. The Library has programming for school aged children and Story Times for children from birth-5 years old. Visit our events calendar to find our programming for children and all ages.
All books will be delivered to the address you provided us at registration by the U.S. Postal Service. If you believe that you are having issues with your delivery please confirm that you have the correct address listed in your account information and then contact the post office closest to your mailing address.
The Library is not responsible for lost or stolen packages. The books are processed through Dolly Parton Imagination Library, PLS has no control over this process.
This program is open to all children who reside either full-time or part-time at an address within Cleveland, McClain, or Pottawatomie County in Oklahoma. Children must be 4 years and 11 months old or younger to qualify. Any child older than 4 years and 11 months at the time of registration is not eligible for the program.
