Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Offers Free Books for Youth Up to 5 Years Old
Since the late 1990’s, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program has delivered conscientiously chosen, free personalized and age-appropriate books every month to children up to five years old.
Parton’s charitable endeavor, first launched in her native Sevier County, in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains, was inspired by her hardworking, wise father who cannot read well. The Imagination Library program is the cornerstone of Parton’s Dollywood Foundation, which encourages students to stay in school and offer scholarships and financial incentives for them upon graduation.
In addition to corporate sponsors and affiliate organizations, such as United Way, Imagination Library relies on about 2,500 local community partners in the five countries currently served. Within those community partners, thousands of local volunteers work daily to either help raise money or enroll children and update records.
The seeds of these dreams are often found in books and the seeds you help plant in your community can grow across the world.Dolly Parton
