Children whose parents enroll them with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library receive one new book in the mail each month from birth through age five at no cost, creating a personal library of as many as 60 books that can help form the foundation of a child’s early reading experience. After tremendous growth, Delaware & Arkansas have now achieved statewide coverage, making every child under five eligible to enroll in the program.

Delaware Statewide Celebration at 12:30 PM EST

At 12:30 p.m. EST, tune in to watch Dolly as she joins Governor John Carney and First Lady Tracey Quillen Carney for a special conversation and brief musical performance to celebrate the success of the Imagination Library in Delaware. The special livestream broadcast will be available to watch simultaneously on imaginationlibrary.com and YouTube. (*Note: this event has been rescheduled to 12:30PM from its previously scheduled time.)

Governor Carney first announced a pilot launch of the Imagination Library program in five Delaware school districts in his 2020 State of the State address, with the Division of Libraries partnering with 13 local public libraries to make the program available to families within the pilot districts. Now, thanks to the tireless efforts of the program’s statewide partners and supporters, the Imagination Library has now reached full statewide coverage in Delaware.
