Dolly Parton Imagination Library

Literacy Council


In 1996, Dolly Parton launched an exciting new effort, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, to benefit the children of her home county in East Tennessee, USA. Dolly's vision was to foster a love of reading among her county's preschool children and their families by providing them with the gift of a specially selected book each month. By mailing high quality, age-appropriate books directly to their homes, she wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create. Moreover, she could insure that every child would have books, regardless of their family's income.

Dolly's Imagination Library became so popular that the program is now available for replication to any community that is willing to partner with her to support it locally. Union County is proud to partner with this program to promote reading in South Arkansas.

The United Way of Union County sponsors this free book program for county residents age birth to five.
