    What is Dolly Parton's Imagination Library?
    Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is ... FREE!  It sounds almost too simple to be true, but by reading regularly with your children during their preschool years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward the most successful education they will ever get.
    Dolly Parton's Imagination Library will help you read with your child.  There are many reasons parents do not read to their child, but we can eliminate one of them.  The children will have books of their own at no cost thank to the United Way of the Piedmont, and its donors.
    Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child's name directly to your home.  He/she can look forward to new exciting reading adventures from Imagination Library until he/she turns five years old and as long as you remain a resident of or employed in Spartanburg and/or Union County.  Should the child move outside Spartanburg and/or Union County or the parent/guardian are no longer employed there, he/she automatically exits the program.
    Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a FREE GIFT to our children!  All you have to do is read to your children.
