A Pittsburgh branch of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library that provides free books to children has been opened.

Parents of children below the age of 5 who reside in Pittsburgh can now sign their children up to receive one free book per month through an online portal.

It was the Pittsburgh City Council that took the initiative to open the library, through a $250,000 grant from the Benter Foundation to help fund the free book program.

The country music icon launched the monthly book giving program for children in Sevier County, Tennessee, 24 years ago through her Dollywood Foundation.

"Do you live in the City of Pittsburgh and have a child younger than 5? Register today and your child can receive a free book in the mail each month until their fifth birthday," reads a message from the office of Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto.
