Founded by the famously sweet-voiced singer from Tennessee, Imagination Library is a non-profit organization that mails free, high-quality, age-appropriate books to pre-school children.
Trego Hospital Endowment Foundation, Inc, organized the effort to bring Imagination Library to our local children, with help from a Dane Hansen Grant being administered through Heartland Community Foundation, and great board support.
In every area, there are families who, perhaps because of where they live, maybe can’t get to the library that often, or maybe it’s the hours, the reason really doesn’t matter. Many of us grew up in a rural area and we loved to read as a child, so we are offering Dolly Parton Imagination Library to your child at home. Every month, your child gets a free book that is age-appropriate, to your home, by mail, at no cost to your family.
There are hundreds of available titles, including “Corduroy Goes to the Doctor” (Don Freeman and Lisa McCue), “Little Owl’s Night” (Divya Srinivasan), “A House is a House for Me” (Mary Ann Hoberman) and “Where the Butterflies Grow” (Joanne Ryder). October 2015 book titles were; “My First Songs”(Tomie dePaola), “Little Poems for Tiny Ears”(Lin Oliver), “Maple”(Lori Nichols), “Llama Llama and the bully goat”(Anna Dewdney), “Runaway Tomato”(Kim Cooley), “At this Very Moment”(Jim Amosky).
Parton started Imagination Library in her home state in 1995 and expanded it in 2000 to any community that wanted to partner with her organization. Since then, Imagination Library has mailed more than 60 million books to children in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
