Dolly Parton's Imagination Library Program


Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of Australia is a free book gifting program devoted to inspiring a love of reading in the hearts of children everywhere. Each month, enrolled children receive a high-quality, age-appropriate book in the mail, free of charge. Children receive books from birth to age five.

In 2013, a joint effort between Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and United Way Australia began. The partnership helped bring the program to Australia in 2013 making it the fourth nation and third continent to launch the Imagination Library.

How It Works

Each month, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library mails a high-quality, age-appropriate book to all registered children, addressed to them, at no cost to the child’s family. Countless parents have shared how excited their child is when their new book arrives each month. Many groups and individuals work hard behind the scenes to make that special moment possible for each child.
