Benefits of Early Childhood Literacy

Research shows that reading to young children, from birth, not only provides healthy together time for parents, families, and children, it also offers many lifelong benefits such as increased vocabulary, curiosity, and memory. Let us help you provide positive associations with reading while building your child’s listening skills, a foundation for academic success.

How Does It Work?

Each month one new, age-appropriate high-quality book will be mailed in your child’s name directly to your home. They can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library until they turn five years old!

Wilson Books from Birth serves all residents of Wilson County.

We Rely on Community Support!

The Lebanon Wilson County Chamber of Commerce has taken the lead in the organization and oversight of the Books From Birth Program. The United Way, local businesses & foundations, school districts, education foundations, Chambers of Commerce, civic organizations, individuals, and local governments also support our mission.
