WHAT IS DOLLY PARTON'S IMAGINATION LIBRARY?

 
The State of Tennessee and The Governor's Early Literacy Foundation are teaming up with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program so that all preschoolers in Tennessee can have their own Imagination Library.  Just think, a book mailed to your children each month until their fifth birthday, absolutely free!  Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost to you, thanks to The Governor's Early Literacy Foundation and the State of Tennessee, Art Circle Public Library, the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, and other generous sponsors.
Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child's name directly to your home.  He/she can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library until he/she turns five years old as long as you remain a resident of Cumberland County.  Should the child move outside Cumberland County, he/she automatically exits the program.  If you're moving within Tennessee, call toll free (877) 99-Books or go to www.governorsfoundation.org to see if the Imagination Library is available in your new community.
