Dolly Parton's

Imagination Library


Free Book Program for Stevens County Kids, Age 0-5

We love free books!


The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free books to children from birth to age five. This amazing program was founded in 1995 in Dolly Parton’s home county in Tennessee. It quickly became a success and is now an international program, gifting more than a million books each month.

Imagination library puts books into the hands and hearts of children across the world.

It is our goal to give children in Stevens County a library of their very own. Reading aloud together gives parents and children a time to connect, laugh and play. Having a love for books and reading gives children a foundation for literacy skills that set them up for success and it is not without the support of the Early Childhood Initiative that we can accomplish this goal.

Feel free to contact Laura Ennen, our local champion of Dolly Parton Imagination Library, with any questions.
