Imagination Library


What is Dolly Parton's Imagination Library?

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library will help you read with your child.  Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost to you.

Each month a new carefully selected book will be mailed 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 remain a resident within Beltrami, Hubbard, or Clearwater county. Should your child move outside those counties, your child automatically exits the program (or is transferred to another program, if it's available in your new city).

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a FREE GIFT to our children! All you have to do is read to your children.

Who is Eligible?

Preschool children (birth until their fifth birthday) who reside within Beltrami, Hubbard, or Clearwater county.
