Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

The single most significant factor influencing a child’s early educational success is an introduction to books and being read to at home prior to beginning school. That is why United Way of Aroostook brought Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to Aroostook County in 2010. Since the program began in 2010, more than 160,000 books have been mailed to children in our community.

United Way of Aroostook’s Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails a brand new, age-appropriate book to enrolled children every month from birth until five years of age, creating a home library of up to 60 books and instilling a love of books and reading from an early age. The Imagination Library promotes early childhood education and fosters parent-child interaction – both of which are fundamental ingredients to future educational success.
