Who We Are
BEGIN WITH BOOKS is the Charleston County (SC) affiliate of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, a global book-gifting program that sends monthly books by mail to babies and toddlers.
An all-volunteer organization, BEGIN WITH BOOKS is operated as an initiative of the Palmetto Project, a South Carolina nonprofit that offers administrative support.
We are shipping over 4,900 books per month directly to the homes of enrolled babies and toddlers in
Charleston's Peninsula (zip codes 29401, 29403, and 29409)
Charleston West Ashley zip 29407
North Charleston (zip codes 29404, 29405, 29406, 29418, and 29420)
Studies show that children who participate in the Imagination Library:
Enter school ready to learn.
Do better in school.
Have a better chance to become productive members of the community.
