About Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Since launching in 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has become the preeminent early
childhood book gifting program in the world. The flagship program of The Dollywood Foundation,
a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has gifted over 200 million free books in the United States,
Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and The Republic of Ireland. This is achieved through funding
shared by The Dollywood Foundation and Local Program Partners. The Imagination Library mails
more than 2 million high-quality, age-appropriate books each month to enrolled children from birth
to age five. Dolly envisioned creating a lifelong love of reading and inspiring children to Dream
More, Learn More, Care More, and Be More®.
The program has been widely researched and results demonstrate the positive impact on early
childhood development and literacy skills. Penguin Random House is the exclusive publisher for
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
