Dolly Parton’s Imagination library is now available to all young children in Tyrrell and Washington Counties!

In 1996, Dolly Parton launched a reading program to benefit the children of her home county in east Tennessee called Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.  Dolly wanted to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and their families. She wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create.

Eligible children will receive one free developmentally appropriate book in the mail per month until they reach their fifth birthday. The books distributed by the Dolly Parton Foundation are carefully selected to be age-appropriate and to deliver positive, developmentally important skill opportunities for the targeted children.

This service is at no cost to the family. Tyrrell-Washington Partnership for Children is currently providing this service to all children in Tyrrell County and Washington County between the ages of birth to five years old.
