Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
Giving the Gift of Reading
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL) to help families nurture a culture of literacy by providing free books to children in Coconino, Navajo and Apache counties.
Being read to or having a small child be able to flip through a book and look at the pictures are key behaviors that foster literacy. They teach children how to “operate” a book, and that amazing images and stories are waiting for them between the covers.With the help of our main sponsor, Tim Kinney Construction, and our program partner, LAUNCH Flagstaff, this initiative provides a carefully selected children’s book to children aged 0-5 once a month free of charge, delivered straight to their door. Building this home library will encourage a lifelong love of reading that will strengthen and support these children throughout their academic careers.
Please join us and donate to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in northern Arizona by clicking on the link below. This is not a charity or a social service – it is a children’s reading program. The singer started the program 20 years ago in her hometown in East Tennessee, and it now is an international program that has mailed more than 70 million free books.
