Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is helping you give a boost to your child's education by providing free children's books by mail monthly. By reading regularly with children during their pre-school years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward the successful education they will ever get.

A new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child's name directly to your home each month. They can look forward to new and exciting adventures from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library until their child turns five years old and as long as they remain a resident of Robeson County.  

With the arrival of the first book, the classic “The Little Engine That Could,” children begin to experience the joy that may be found in books. These moments continue each month until the child turns five, and in their very last month in the program, they receive “Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come.” 

Who is eligible?

All children ages birth to five who live in Robeson County are eligible! 

What are my responsibilities?

  • Be a resident of Robeson County 

  • Submit a Dolly Parton's Imagination Library Registration request ( must be filled out by the parent/ guardian). The request must be approved and on file with the Lumber River United Way. 

Eight to ten weeks after your registration form has been received, books will begin arriving at your home and will continue until your child turns five or you move out of Robeson County. Let us know if your address changes while your child is enrolled.
