Imagination Library

We are proud to be supporting Dolly Parton's Imagination Library here at Rosedale Primary School

Our aim is to have every child signed up to the scheme to receive their book every month until they turn 5.


What is the Imagination Library?

The Imagination Library sends a FREE book to every child registered from birth until they turn 5. Everyone receives The tale of Peter Rabbit as their first book and the last book just after their fifth birthday is Just Imagine. 


Who is eligible?

Every child under the age of 5 living in Doncaster is eligible for the scheme.

You can still apply for the scheme if you move into the area.


How to sign up?

  • Visit Doncaster Council website searching for Imagination Library.
  • Ask a member of staff in Foundation Stage
  • Call 01302 736519


What benefits does the love of books have?

Sharing a story strengthens the existing bond between parent and child. Research shows that children who participate in shared reading are better prepared for school. By developing a love of books you are enhancing not only their reading skills but their language and communication skills, promoting their social and emotional skills as well as enhancing their imagination.


Just 10 minutes quality reading time per day makes a lifetime of difference to your child.
