The mission of the Imagination Library of Washington is to increase literacy by ensuring all young children across the state may participate in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Our goal is to provide support to current affiliates and launch new affiliates so all children in Washington have access. 

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.
