Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Established by country music legend Dolly Parton, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is an international program that mails free books monthly to children from birth to the age of 5.  United Way of the Concho Valley is thrilled to bring Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to children 0-5 years of age in the Concho Valley. A priority at UWCV is to ensure all children are school-ready by kindergarten and grade-level readers by 3rd grade.  Studies show early literacy is important to the success of a child and even adulthood.  Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is an excellent tool to help get books into the hands of children at an early age and start encouraging the importance of reading.

Enroll your eligible child in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and get a free book every month until their fifth birthday.

3. Your child will begin receiving free books each month until they are ready for kindergarten.
