Dolly Parton's Imagination Library
The Imagination Library mails free, high-quality books to registered children in Cabarrus County from birth to age 5.
Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is an award-winning program founded by Dolly Parton in 1995. Through funding from Smart Start, Cabarrus Partnership for Children began administering the program to children living in Cabarrus County in October 2017. The entire program is free to families, with no shipping or hidden fees.
After a child is enrolled in the program, they will receive a specially-selected, age-appropriate book in the mail every month until they turn 5. Every child receives "The Little Engine that Could" as their first book, which comes about 8 weeks after registration.
