Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is dedicated to inspiring a love of reading by gifting books free of charge to children from birth to age five, through funding shared by Dolly Parton and local community partners in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and Republic of Ireland.
Inspired by her father's inability to read and write Dolly started her Imagination Library in 1995 for the children within her home county. Today, her program spans five countries and gifts over 1 million free books each month to children around the world.
Throughout 2022, staff of the Grafton-Midview Public Library has started a "Denim for Dolly" campaign. For a $1 donation, staff may wear jeans any day of the week. Our dollars will then be donated to the Imagination Library to help more children in our area receive free books. Our goal is to make sure every eligible child in our area is able to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
