Inspiring a Love of Reading
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails one free, age-appropriate book per month to children from birth until their 5th birthday. Imagination Library exists to inspire a love of reading and learning during a child’s most formative years. Imagination Library of Waco is the local affiliate non-profit organization responsible for enrolling children and fundraising for the local program. Books are age-appropriate, high-quality titles selected by a committee of early childhood literacy experts. Peer-reviewed studies suggest participation in the Imagination Library is positively and significantly associated with higher measures of early language and math development. Imagination Library of Waco currently provides books to over 1,000 children every month and has gifted nearly 17,000 books since February 2021.
