A Message from Dolly Parton

Dear Friends, 

Before he passed away, my Daddy told me the Imagination Library was probably the most important thing I had ever done. I can’t tell you how much that meant to me because I created the Imagination Library as a tribute to my Daddy. He was the smartest man I have ever known but I know in my heart that his inability to read probably kept him from fulfilling all of his dreams. 

Inspiring kids to love to read became my mission. In the beginning, my hope was simply to inspire the children in my home county but here we are today with a worldwide program that gives a book a month to well over 1 million children. 
Of course, I have not done this alone. The real heroes of our story are the thousands of local organizations like JSB Pledge 10 who have embraced my dream and made it their own. They raise millions of dollars each year and wake up every day with a passion to make sure their kids have every opportunity to succeed. 

I hope these books inspire you to read with your child. There is nothing quite like snuggling up with a good book - just like when my Momma read to me on her lap in our tiny one-bedroom cabin many years ago.

“The first step is always the hardest, but you’ll never know unless you try!” --Dolly Parton 

How it works

It sounds almost too simple to be true, but by reading regularly with your children during their preschool years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever get. 

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library can help your child love to read just by having print books at home, reading yourself, and setting aside time daily for your children to read. Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost to you thanks to JSB Pledge 10, and Dolly Parton. Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child's name directly to your home. 

Your child can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library until they turn five years old as long as you live within a covered geographic area. 

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a free gift to your child! All you have to do is read often to inspire a lifelong love of reading!
