Are you a tenant with a child under 5?

You can sign up to the Imagination Library and get one free book for your child every month until their 5th birthday.

Almond HA has partnered with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to provide free books for tenants’ children who are eligible under the scheme.

If you have received a registration slip but haven’t had a chance to complete it, please post it in the prepaid envelope provided or alternatively hand it in to our offices.

We are still registering tenants during the Coronavirus pandemic. Just email our Community Engagement Officer, Barbara at to sign up. Dolly Parton will also be reading some stories in the Goodnight With Dolly initiative. This will run for a 10 week period, beginning on Thursday 2nd April 2020.
