Kids enrolled in Caroline County Imagination Library receive a FREE book every month delivered right to their homes. Every child receives carefully selected books that are appropriate for their age. The Dolly Parton Foundation does an excellent job of choosing high quality books by outstanding authors. New books are selected each year, so if your family has multiple children participating in the program, you shouldn't receive any duplicated books. Children of the same age all receive the same books each month. That means that when they arrive in Kindergarten, they will all have a shared experience of reading the same books.
Our trained staff, who themselves have cared for a young person with mental health, substance use and/or other behavioral health needs, will work one-to-one with you - listening to your concerns, attending meetings, assisting you to complete forms, explaining your rights and connecting you to appropriate services. Family Peer Support Specialists (FPSS) also work in partnership with local agencies and participate on planning and advisory boards to provide a family perspective on policies and programs. Family Peer Support Specialists make every effort to involve many families in leadership roles in their community.
