Research from around the world shows that early literacy maps directly to a child's cognitive development, academic success and even their life expectancy. Improving literacy doesn't have to be complex. The first step is getting books into children's hands. All children. That's why we've affiliated with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to help the children of Berkeley build excellent personal libraries before Kindergarten.

“It’s free” is never the best reason to register your child. “It’s an excellent collection” and “your child will love it!” are far better ones.
If you worry about using a free service when you already buy the books you want, worry not! Take action: make a donation! A subscription to Highlights or Passports costs more than the Imagination Library: just $25 covers books one year’s books for a child. And, you cannot purchase the excellent literature research and choices the IL Selection Committee undertakes annually. You, as well as your child, will be introduced to excellent mind- and heart-opening titles you would not likely have encountered on your own.
