Dolly Parton book scheme to be launched in Bradford

A children's centre in Bradford plans to adopt a reading scheme launched in Rotherham by US country singer Dolly Parton. The Imagination Library encourages children under five to read by sending them a free book every month. Parton launched it in Rotherham in 2007 after pioneering the scheme in the US. Chris McKay, head of Canterbury Children's Centre, said the project would help families who could not afford to buy books. The centre would be the 31st place in the UK to start an Imagination Library
