Dolly Parton's Imagination Library


 What is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library?

It sounds almost too simple to be true, but by reading regularly with your children during their preschool years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever get.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will help you read with your child. There are many reasons parents do not read to their child, but we can eliminate one of them. Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost you, thanks to Lincoln County Community Partnership and Dolly Parton.

Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child’s name directly to your home. He/she can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library until he/she turns five years old as long as you remain a resident of the city of Lincolnton. Should the child move outside of the city of Lincolnton, he/she automatically exits the program.

 Who is Eligible?

Preschool children (birth until their fifth birthday) of the city of Lincolnton.

 What are My Responsibilities?

1. Be a resident of the City of Lincolnton. 2. Submit an official registration form, completely filled out by a parent or guardian (form must be approved and on file with Lincoln County Community Partnership). 3. Notify Lincoln County Community Partnership any time your address changes. Books are mailed to the address listed on the official registration form. If the child's address changes, you must contact Lincoln County Community Parnership in order to continue receiving books. 4. Read to your child. When Will I Receive Books? Eight to ten weeks after your registration form has been received, books will begin arriving at your home and will continue until your child turns five or you move out of the city of Lincolnton.
