So you are asking yourself, what is Dolly Parton's Imagination Library?  Well it almost sounds too simple to be true, but by reading regularly with your children or grandchildren during their preschool years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever get.

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library will help you read with your child.  There can be many reasons parents do not read to their child, but we can eliminate one of them.  Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost to you, thanks to the Imagination Library of Benton County, the Benton Community Foundation, Dolly Parton and the great local businesses and community organizations like the Fowler Rotary Club, just one of the original sponsor's of the program locally.


Each month a new, carefully selected, age appropriate book will be mailed in your child's name directly to your home.  They can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library until they turn five years old. as long as you remain a resident of Benton County.
