Support Dolly’s Imagination Library

One of the best gifts you can give a child this holiday season is the gift of literacy.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free books monthly to registered Lyon County children up to age 5. On the child’s fifth birthday, they will receive the book “Look out Kindergarten, Here I Come” to prepare them for kindergarten.

Children who are read to develop a bond with their parents/guardians, their concentration improves and it helps them to achieve better grades in school.

Imagination Library also helps parents to become more confident readers when they read to their children.

Since September 2007, the literacy program has steadily grown. We now have more than 170 children enrolled and we are receiving positive feedback from parents who have received books.

None of this would be possible without the support and generosity of our sponsors.

We would appreciate any support of this program in the form of a donation.

A contribution to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is an investment in early childhood education in our community.

Checks can be made out to: Lyon County Board of Education; for Imagination Library.

Donations can be sent to: Imagination Library, 219 Jenkins Rd, Eddyville, KY 42038 or online at For more information, about Imagination Library visit:
