Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library puts books into the hands and hearts of children across the world. We partner with local communities to provide a specially-selected, high-quality book each month to participating children from Birth to age Five. These books are personalized with each child’s name and mailed directly to their home to create a gifting experience that makes book exciting and encourages families to spend time enjoying books together.
Best of all, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is available to all children at no cost to the family. Since 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has delivered more than 110 million books to children in more than 2000 local communities worldwide.
With the support of local donations, coordination by partners and encouragement from community leaders and organizations, parents and educators spread the love of reading and engage children in the most fundamental skill necessary to succeed in life.
The presence of books in the home supports the child’s academic, social and emotional development. Children develop a special bond with their parents and caregivers by reading together. The Imagination Library puts books into the hands and hearts of children across the world at no cost to the family.
