Enroll your child in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library


Every child should have books in their home. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library makes that easy and free. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a 60-volume set of books beginning with the children’s classic The Little Engine That Could. Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in the child’s name directly to their home. This is a free program.

The Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library and United Way of Greater Topeka are partnering to make Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library available to all children birth to 5 years old in Shawnee County.

To sign up your baby, toddler or preschooler for this program visit the Imagination Library site and complete the registration form. Your child will start receiving books eight to 10 weeks after the form is submitted. Your child will continue to receive a book every month until they turn 5 or you move out of Shawnee County. Books are mailed to the address on the registration form. If the child’s address changes, you must update your address online or contact United Way of Greater Topeka with the new address at either:
