THE PROGRAM

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a free book gifting program dedicated to sharing a love of reading with children around the world. Each month,  Imagination Library mails a high quality, age appropriate book to all registered children, addressed to them, at no cost to the child’s family.

 

Parents and guardians have shared their child's excitement when their new book arrives each month. Many groups like the Rotary of Westmoreland and individuals work behind the scenes to make that special moment possible for each child.

Imagination Library provides the infrastructure of the core program including managing the secure central database for the Book Order System and coordinating book selections and wholesale purchasing. It also incurs the cost of the program’s administrative expenses and coordinates the monthly mailings.
