Inspire a Love of Reading!

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails FREE books to children from birth until they turn 5, no matter their family’s income. Together with United Way of Cumberland County, your local Partnership for Children is working to ensure children in our community develop a love of reading early on.

Note: The first book may take up to 3 months to be delivered. The primary caregiver must be the one to complete the application. Duplicate applications may result in removal from the program. If you move, the US Postal Service will not forward books. You must change your address online through the parent portal, so please save your confirmation email.
