What Is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library?

Dolly Parton’s Imagination

Library is…FREE!

              It sounds almost too simple to be true, but by 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 to you,thanks to My First Books SC 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 Beaufort County. Should the child move outside Beaufort County, he/she automatically exits the program.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a FREE GIFT to our children! All you have to do is read to your children.
