Our Raise the Region funding will support Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, an initiative of our local Women United, in Northumberland, Snyder and Union counties. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free books to children from birth to age five in participating communities. Inspired by her father’s inability to read and write, Dolly started her Imagination Library in 1995 for the children within her home county. Dolly’s vision was to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and their families by providing them with the gift of a specially selected book each month. Today, her program spans four countries and mails more than 1 million free books each month to children around the world. “When I was growing up in the hills of East Tennessee, I knew my dreams would come true. I know there are children in your community with their own dreams. They dream of becoming a doctor or an inventor or a minister. Who knows, maybe there is a little girl whose dream is to be a writer and singer. The seeds of these dreams are often found in books and the seeds you help plant in your community can grow across the world.”
