GOOD Idea in Action: Begin With Books

Imagine a world where all children love to read.


Imagine a world where all children start school on a level playing field.


Imagine a world where all children reach their full potential.


BEGIN WITH BOOKS can make it happen by:
   putting literacy resources in the home and
   encouraging parents to read to their youngest children

JOIN US IN INSPIRING YOUNG CHILDREN IN OUR COMMUNITY TO READ AND SUCCEED.

BEGIN WITH BOOKS is the Charleston County (SC) affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, the country music star’s iconic free books-by-mail program for pre-school children.  

BEGIN WITH BOOKS is an all-volunteer organization currently serving nine communities in Charleston County.  We are shipping over 1,900 books per month directly to the homes of enrolled children in 
  • Adams Run
  • Awendaw
  • Charleston’s Peninsula 
  • Edisto
  • Hollywood-Meggett-Yonges Island
  • Johns Island
  • McClellanville
  • Ravenel
  • Wadmalaw Island

Currently eligible zip codes are:  29401, 29403, 29409, 29426, 29429, 29438, 29449, 29455, 29458, 29470, and 29487. 

We have delivered 27,588 books over the past 3 years, and 1,948 babies and toddlers are now receiving monthly books through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Charleston County. As a consequence of this in-home, monthly delivery, participating parents are spending more time reading to their babies, and — even before they can read themselves — these children are building the pre-literacy skills that will help them in everything they do in school and in life.
