Dolly Parton Imagination Library

WE LOVE TO READ! Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a FREE program available to preschool (from birth to age 5) children living in Cayuga County. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will mail a new children’s book to your child every month until the child’s fifth birthday.  Reading to your child at a young age promotes literacy and learning ability later in life.

Help us bring literacy and books home to young children! Your $30 donation to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library ensures 2,400 Cayuga County preschool children enrolled in the imagination library will continue to receive quality children's books, mailed to their home monthly!
