Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB)

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL) partnered with Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) to make many of the wonderful books in the program available in an audio format. Now young blind and visually impaired children can benefit from these wonderful children’s books.

Thanks to a collaborative effort between DPIL, CNIB and Penguin Random House, an ever expanding collection of titles will be available as free downloadable children’s audio books. New titles are posted every month!
