What Is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library?
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is...FREE!
“This program is one of the most important ways I know to improve the educational opportunities for children in your community!”
Suppose it sounds almost too simple to be true by reading regularly with your children during their preschool years. In that case, you are giving them the most significant boost toward a successful education they will ever get. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will help you read with your child. There are many reasons parents do not read to their children, but we can eliminate one of them. Thanks to United Way of Miami County and Dolly Parton, every child will have books of their own at no cost to you.
A new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child’s name directly to your home each month. They can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library until they turn five years old if they remain a resident of Miami County. Should the child move outside Miami County, they automatically exit the program.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a FREE GIFT to our children! All you have to do is read to your children.
