About Dolly Parton's Imagination Library
In 1995, Dolly Parton launched Imagination Library to benefit the children of her home county in East Tennessee. Dolly’s vision was to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and their families by providing them with the gift of a specially selected book each month. By mailing high quality, age-appropriate books directly to their homes, she wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create. Now, Partners for Children & Families is bringing this program to local families for free!
Moore County parents and guardians of children ages birth to five are eligible to register. Each month, a new, carefully selected book will be mailed to the home in the child's name in an effort to create a sense of excitement about getting new books. It generally takes 6-9 weeks from the time of enrollment until the first book is received. This program is provided at no cost to families.
For more information on the program or to register, contact Bonnie Archibald, Early Literacy Coordinator, at (910) 949-4045.
