Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Dolly Parton and children reading for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library


Enroll your child now to receive free books monthly from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library! 

How it works: 

  • Enroll your child as early as birth to receive one book a month until their 5th birthday.
  • Upon enrollment, wait 6-8 weeks to receive their first book in the mail (the first book is The Little Engine That Could).

This program is encouraged in conjunction with our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. 


Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is the flagship program of The Dollywood Foundation. It reaches more children than any other early childhood book gifting program, and mails free, high-quality, age-appropriate books to children from birth until age five, no matter their family’s income.
