Dream more, Learn more, Care more, Be more!

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, expanding in The United States, Canada and The United Kingdom, is pleased to announce that new communities are launching the program and continuing to promote early childhood literacy for families across the globe.

Looking to start something like this in your area?

Here’s how it works:

A community must make the program accessible to all preschool children in their area. The community pays for the books and mailing, promotes the program, registers the children, and enters the information into the database.

From there The Dollywood Foundation takes over and manages the system to deliver the books to the home.

so what are you waiting for?

Hundreds of communities are providing books to hundreds of thousands of children.

Dolly Parton wanted to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and their families. She wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create. Moreover, she could insure that every child would have books, regardless of their family’s income.

Dream more, Learn more, Care more, Be more!
