Registration for “Governor’s Young Readers” Program Begins Today for Baltimore City
A New Book Will Be Mailed Each Month to Participating Children

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan has announced that starting today, every child, from infancy to age 5, in Baltimore City can be enrolled, free of charge, in a new reading and book-delivery program. Named “Governor’s Young Readers,” the program is a part of country star Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, the Tennessee-based nonprofit organization that mails a specifically selected, age-appropriate book each month to the homes of participating children. The governor first announced the state’s adoption of the program in December.
