What is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library?
It sounds almost too simple to be true, but by reading regularly with your children during their early years – from birth! – you are giving them the biggest boost toward a success they will ever get.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will help you read with your child. Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost to you, thanks to The Dollywood Foundation. Here in the Copper River Valley, books are funded by Best Beginnings, Rasmuson Foundation, and the Alaska Dept. of Education & Early Development.
Each month a new, carefully-selected book will be mailed in your child’s name directly to your home. He/she can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library until he/she turns five years old, as long as you remain a resident of the Copper River Valley. Should the child move outside, he/she automatically exits the program.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a FREE GIFT to our children! All you have to do is read to them.
