It sounds almost too simple to be true, but by reading regularly with your child during their preschool years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward a 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.  Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost to you, thanks to Governor Bredesen and the State of TennesseeWilson Books from Birth, other generous sponsors and Dolly Parton.

Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in you child’s name directly to your home.  He/she can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library until he/she turns five years old and you remain a resident of Wilson County.


Preschool children (birth until thir fifth birthday) of Wilson County.

When Will I Receive Books?

Eight to ten weeks after your registration form has been received, books will begin arriving at your home and will continue until your child turns five or you move out of Wilson County.
