Dolly Parton Imagination Library
Organization Name: United Way of Cumberland County
Program Description:

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is an early literacy program that mails age-appropriate books to registered children on a monthly basis. The books are mailed in the child's name in an effort to create a sense of excitement about getting new books. Children can receive the books from birth to their fifth birthday, regardless of family income. DPIL is often coordinated through a local nonprofit organization, such as a library. The sponsoring organization selects a geographic area to target for book distribution and raises the funds to cover the cost of the books. Parents can also register children online.
