Shire Kids is dedicated to improving access to books and early literacy programs for children in Southern Vermont.
We're a local program supporting local kids.
In partnership with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, we register children in Bennington County, and Danby - from birth to age 5 - to receive a free age-appropriate book in the mail every month.
With access to books and learning, our youngest Vermonters will have the opportunity to be prepared for school with confidence and a love for books when they enter Kindergarten.
You can help us reach more children!
Register your child today, invite other Bennington county families to join, or make a donation to keep the books coming.
"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents."
