All children under the age of five in Adams County are now able to register to receive free books from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, with Lind-Ritzville Cooperative Schools recently becoming an Imagination Library affiliate serving Benge, Ritzville, Lind, and Washtucna. Currently, over 53,000 Washington children between 0-5 are experiencing the magic of a free book each month provided by 43 affiliates throughout the state.

“A big thank you to Lind-Ritzville Cooperative Schools for bringing Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to families with children under five in Adams County! Becoming an Imagination Library affiliate provides such an impactful opportunity to children, better preparing them for kindergarten and beyond,” stated Executive Director of the Imagination Library of Washington, Brooke Fisher-Clark.”

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library mails high quality, age-appropriate books each month to children from birth up to a child’s fifth birthday, at no cost to the family. In 1995, Dolly Parton created the Imagination Library as a tribute to her father, whose inability to read inspired her to get more books into the hands of children and ignite a love of reading. To-date, the Imagination Library has gifted over 204 million books to children in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and the Republic of Ireland.
