Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Now Available in Every Kentucky Community

The Governor, Lieutenant Governor and First Lady celebrated the statewide expansion of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. For the first time, every preschool child in Kentucky can have the gift of reading delivered to their home, building a love of books that can last a lifetime.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL) mails a free, age-appropriate book to children each month from birth to age 5 and has been shown to have a significant positive impact on kindergarten readiness. The program partners with local 501(c)(3) or governmental organizations to register children in their area, every community in the Commonwealth is now served by a local partner.
