In partnership with

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Dolly Parton launched her Imagination Library in 1995. Dolly’s vision was to foster a love of reading among preschool children and their families by mailing high quality, age-appropriate books directly to their homes each month. She wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create.

Currently, over 1600 local communities in the United States, Canada,  and the United Kingdom provide Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to their children. Reports have shown that children enrolled in the program show tremendous improvement in early childhood literacy.
