Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

WHAT IS DOLLY PARTON’S IMAGINATION IN LIBRARY (DPIL)?

DPIL provides a free, hardcover book monthly to children living in Buncombe County ages birth up to five years old. Participating children receive an age appropriate book each month, mailed directly to the child from the time of registration until age 5. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library supports preparing children for kindergarten by exposing children to the concepts of print, encouraging child/parent reading, and increasing early literacy skills.

HOW MANY CHILDREN DO YOU SERVE?

In November 2015, we started with 200 children enrolled; now 500 children are a part of the program, thanks in large part to community support. Our goal is to continue to grow.

HOW CAN I REGISTER?

Registration is here. As long as your child lives in Buncombe County as is between birth and five years old, they are eligible!

 

Get Involved.

You can donate $26 to cover the cost of books and postage every month for a year through this program, or you can ask your book club to join and support a child for their entire time in the program. Email us at [email protected] for more information!
