Dolly Parton launched the UK Imagination Library in December 2007. Over 100 communities and businesses are now part of the scheme and nearly 20,000 children and their families are benefiting from receiving monthly books.
The Imagination Library aims in inspire a love of reading from the earliest possible age through providing a free age appropriate book, delivered to the child’s home each month, from the time they are born until they reach the age of five. The Imagination Library has delivered over 70 million books across the US, Canada, Australia and the UK since the programme was launched for children in Dolly’s home county of Sevier, Tennessee in 1996.
