Every child should have books in their home. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library makes that easy and free. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is up to 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. (See the Library’s annual report on Year 2 of the program.)
Babies can sign up as soon as they are born! 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 (check the national Imagination Library site to see if the program is supported in your new location). 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 by email OR phone, 785.273.4804.
