MIDDLEBURY — Thanks to a partnership with the nurses at Porter Hospital Birthing Center in Middlebury, Addison County Readers Inc. (ACR) is able to present a free book to each baby born there. “Books at Birth” is just a beginning; Addison County parents can sign up for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library (DPIL) and their children will receive a free book each month from birth to age 5. That’s 60 books.
