Watch your child's home library grow each month!


How It Works

1 in 5 children under the age of five in the United States of America receives monthly books from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. 

That's over 2 million registered children, and over 200 million children's books gifted. The best part about it? As Dolly says, "You can never get enough books into the hands of enough children.”

All you have to do is sign up.

Each month, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library mails a high quality, age appropriate book to all registered children. Books are addressed to them, at no cost to the child’s family. Countless parents have shared how excited their child is when their new book arrives each month. 

All children from birth to age five living in the City of Richmond are eligible. Children "graduate" the program at age five.


We handle the logistics.

The Imagination Library manages the infrastructure of the core program. This includes managing the secure Book Order System, book selections, and wholesale purchasing. The Imagination Library also incurs the cost of the program’s administrative expenses and coordinates the monthly mailings.


The outcome is priceless.

When an adult reads aloud to a child, it fosters a connection through a love of books. When children learn to read at an early age, they develop valuable skills that prepare them to succeed in school and in life. 


Books have the power to engage the imagination, inspire a love of learning, and contribute to a brighter future!

Would you prefer we handle the address change instead? We are happy help with that, too! Please notify us.


We can assist you in looking to see if your new address offers the program and facilitate a transfer. Simply contact us with your child's first and last name, as well as your new zip code.
