This period is so important that military leaders, business executives, and law enforcement professionals are calling for greater investments in early child development. Click here to find out more.

Imagination Library

logo-imaginationlibrary_109x109Imagination Library is a program that sends one free age-appropriate children’s book in the mail to each enrolled child every month until the child turns 5 years of age! While the program is free for all enrolled children, thanks to the support of the Dollywood Foundation, our cost is only about $2 per book, or about $25 per year, per child. We are working to raise these funds through corporate sponsorships, individual donations, and grants. Please consider a donation to support our early literacy efforts through our Imagination Library program! Learn more …
