Enroll a Child in The Imagination Library 

(between the ages of birth & 5 years old residing in Tennesssee)


The Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation (GBBF) is committed to enrolling every child from birth to age five in Tennessee’s statewide Imagination Library. This program is open to all eligible-age children in Tennessee – at no cost to families and regardless of income.

The children's books in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library are selected by a blue ribbon committee of childhood education experts and include such beloved titles as The Little Engine That Could, The Snowy Day, Llama Llama Red Pajama, Madeline, The Story of Ferdinand and Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come!

To begin receiving one new, high-quality, age-appropriate book in the mail every month – a library of up to 60 free children's books – please complete the 4-step registration process.  

If you prefer to enroll your child offline, there are two options available. To download a printable registration form you can mail to us at the listed address, click English or Spanish.  You can also click here to contact the local Imagination Library enrollment coordinator in your county.

Happy reading!
