Dolly Parton Imagination Library

Unlock the imagination of children by sending free books to children, mailed directly to their home each month.

About the Program

United Way is proud to be an affiliate of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library Program. Thanks to our funding partnerships with the Independence County Library and local school districts we are able to offer this program to local students in our area. This program provides free books for children from birth to age five mailed to their home each month. If children are signed up during infancy, they will receive sixty books during their time in the program.

Participating Schools

Batesville, Cave City, Cedar Ridge, Midland, and Southside School Districts.
