The program mails new, carefully selected books to the homes of children from birth to age five living in Dauphin or Perry County, upon registration.

Story Time

Who Can Join

All children in Dauphin and Perry counties, Pennsylvania from the day of birth until their 5th birthday are eligible.

Books begin arriving at your home, eight to ten weeks after your completed registration form has been received and continue until your child turns 5 or you move out of Dauphin County.
