Smart Start and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library are working together to get books into the hands of North Carolina’s youngest children

In 2017, North Carolina’s state lawmakers included $3.5 million in the first year and $7 million in the second year of the state budget for Smart Start to administer Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library across North Carolina.

Your local Partnership for Children, together with United Way of Cumberland County are working to ensure children in our community develop a love of reading early on.


What is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library?

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails FREE, age appropriate, high-quality books to children from birth until they turn five, no matter their family’s income.
