Dolly Parton's Imagination Library in Linn, Benton & Lincoln Counties

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a free book-gifting program for children ages birth to five. Each month, the registered child will receive a carefully selected and age appropriate book in the mail. This program is available in all of Linn and Lincoln Counties and rural Benton County. To date, we have mailed almost 300,000 books to over 8,000 children across our communities. According to 2018-2019 Greater Albany Public Schools' Kindergarten Readiness Scores, children enrolled in the program for 18 months or more increased: Upper Letter Recognition by 21.6%, Lowercase Letter Recognition by 18.7% and Letter-Sound Recognition by 63.9% compared to those wo were not.
