IMAGINATION LIBRARY OF WASHINGTON

The mission of the Imagination Library of Washington is to increase literacy by ensuring all young children across the state have the opportunity to receive free monthly books through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Our statewide goal is to provide support to local program affiliates and launch new affiliates so every child from birth to five in Washington has access to this valuable and foundational early literacy program. 

We know that reading begins at birth, that the benefits of a home library go far beyond the books, and that parents and guardians are a child’s first and best teacher. By providing books every month at no cost to families, the Imagination Library increases childhood literacy rates, fosters a love of books, and promotes a culture of reading among all families in Washington.

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library: loved by families, validated by research.
