Dolly Parton Imagination Library Information


Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free books to children from birth to age five. The goal of the program is to increase childhood literacy and kindergarten readiness.

In Lewis County, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a partnership between local Rotary Clubs and United Way of Lewis County. Currently, there are about 1500 kids enrolled across Lewis County and nearly 10,000 books have already been distributed.

How Does It Work?

  • A parent or guardian enrolls a child in the program
  • Each month, a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in the child’s name, to their home, up to the age of five
  • The child will receive their first book approximately 6-9 weeks after they are enrolled
