Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

A book gifting program for children birth to five

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children ages birth to five. Great Rivers United Way became an Imagination Library Local Program Partner in 2019. Since then, the program has taken off, expanding to serve several zip codes in Crawford and Grant counties.

How it works

  • Parents register children ages birth to five
  • Registrations are processed by the Dollywood Foundation
  • Eligible children receive one free nook every month until they turn five

Local impact – since our program started in 2019:

  • 476 children have registered
  • 20,216 books have been mailed
  • 386 children have graduated from the program
