Imagination Library Documentary To Feature Actress & Author Danica McKellar

Danica McKellar Records Narration For Upcoming Imagination Library Documentary

Dolly is pleased to announce that Danica McKellar will narrate the upcoming documentary, “The Library that Dolly Built.” The documentary, directed by Nick Geidner and written by Abby Bower, explores the journey of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library from a local program to an international partnership that has now gifted over 115 million books. Dolly said,

“I was thrilled that Danica agreed to narrate our documentary. She is the perfect person to help us tell our story. She is very talented and she has such a giving heart.”

Danica is an actress, mathematics writer and education advocate. Her successful acting career includes her role as Winnie Cooper on “The Wonder Years,” several notable voiceovers for animated movies and a number of well-received movies on the Hallmark Channel. Danica said,

“I’ve admired Dolly Parton since childhood, and even more so upon learning of her Imagination Library. I can’t wait for the world to learn more about the Imagination Library through this beautiful documentary, and I couldn’t be prouder to narrate it.”

In addition to her acting work, McKellar has written eight books, all encouraging children, especially young girls, to have confidence and success in mathematics. Her book, “Goodnight, Numbers,” is currently included in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

“The Library That Dolly Built”

“The Library That Dolly Built” is a feature-length documentary, covering the history, impact and future of America’s largest non-governmental children’s literacy program. It features the music of Dolly Parton and includes original interviews with recipients of the books, parents, policy makers, authors, program organizers, and the legend herself, Dolly Parton. With this film, we hope to celebrate one of Tennessee’s greatest exports, the Imagination Library, shine a light on the importance of children’s literacy and put a human face on the many people who make DPIL happen.

Land Grant Films

“The Library That Dolly Built” is being produced by Land Grant Films, a documentary production program housed in the School of Journalism and Electronic Media at the University of Tennessee. Land Grant Film’s mission is to provide University of Tennessee students with real-world experience in documentary storytelling while providing local non-profit organizations with videos assets that can be used to raise awareness and funds. Land Grant Films’ documentaries have been aired on Knoxville’s NBC and PBS affiliates, screened in film festivals, and won numerous awards. All of our films are created by University of Tennessee students or involve students in key crew positions. The Library That Dolly Built was directed by journalism professor Nick Geidner, edited by video instructor Clinton Elmore, and crewed by 15 University of Tennessee students.

Imagination Library Featured On Dolly Parton’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Team Race Car

Imagination Library Featured On Dolly Parton’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Team Race Car

Dolly Parton And Dollywood Sponsor Richard Childress Racing’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Team During Saturday’s Alsco 300 At Bristol Motor Speedway

It’s no secret when Dolly Parton puts her name on something, success follows. NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Tyler Reddick hopes the same holds true during Saturday’s Alsco 300 (TV coverage on FS1) at Bristol Motor Speedway.

For the event, the hood of Reddick’s No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Camaro will be adorned with Parton’s likeness and her record company, Dolly Records, while the rest of the car prominently features the logos from each of Parton’s Pigeon Forge-area attractions. He hopes the addition of the entertainment icon to his car serves as catalyst to put him in Victory Lane for the first time in 2019.

It’s an honor to represent Dolly Parton and her variety of businesses on our No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway,” said the California native. “Dolly is an icon and has had a lot of success in her career, which is something I admire while trying to build my own success in NASCAR. Hopefully, we can take Dolly and the No. 2 Camaro to Victory Lane this weekend in her home state of Tennessee. I think that would be really special for everyone who is a fan of hers.”

Reddick is the 2018 Xfinity Series champion and enters the event in Thunder Valley with RCR as the current series leader. He is fresh off a second place finish in last weekend’s event at Texas Motor Speedway.

Dolly’s Race Car

The car, which appropriately is trimmed in pink, includes the Dollywood theme park logo on the rear quarter panels, with the DollyParton.com website across the rear roof. Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort & Spa and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library receive placement on the car’s rear fascia, and the logos of Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction, Dollywood’s Splash Country and the soon-to-open Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show each are included on the car’s deck lid. Saturday’s race marks the first time Parton and many of her businesses have been featured as a primary sponsor on a race car.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Launches In The Republic of Ireland

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Launches In The Republic of Ireland

The Imagination Library Arrives In The Republic Of Ireland

The Imagination Library has celebrated many exciting milestones. In 2018, founder Dolly Parton dedicated the 100 Millionth Book to the Library of Congress. Now in 2019, another monumental moment has arrived with the launch of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in the Republic of Ireland! 

The Republic of Ireland is now the fifth country to adopt the book gifting programme. Now, registered children can receive a free book each month. The books are mailed to the child in their name which creates a special feeling of ownership and pride. It launched in Dublin 24 and received a warm welcome on opening day! 

Each book is hand-selected by the Gold Medal Book Selection Committee. Titles are chosen to meet the growing needs of children at the pivotal stages of development. “TiN” by Chris Judge is the official Welcome Book and the first book sent to children in the Republic of Ireland. The Committee selected “The Selfish Giant” by Oscar Wilde as the Graduation Book.

If a child is registered in the programme at birth they will have received 60 books by the time they turn five and graduate from the programme. Expansion occurs when local affiliates team up with the Imagination Library to grow the programme in more communities across the Republic of Ireland.

Over 115 Million Free Books Mailed As Of January 2019

Meet Dolly Parton And Be Her VIP Guest At Dollywood

Meet Dolly Parton And Be Her VIP Guest At Dollywood

Dolly Parton teams up with Omaze to give away the ultimate fan experience with proceeds supporting her Imagination Library!

Dolly Parton’s spirit of imagination is stamped on culture, as evidenced by her Imagination Library, which since 1995 has mailed more than 100 million free books to children from birth to five years of age across the globe. Now, in conjunction with the release of her much-anticipated Dumplin’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album (November 30), Parton is teaming with Omaze, to offer her fans an extraordinary opportunity.

Now through January 17, 2019, at 11:59 pm Pacific Time, fans will have the chance to win the Ultimate Dolly Parton Experience!

A winner and their guest will get to spend one night in Dolly Parton’s personal suite at her Dollywood DreamMore Resort! Additionally, Dolly herself will give a private tour of her home-away-from-home, while meeting the guests, taking pictures with them and signing autographs for them. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will be enhanced with additional nights at the resort in other rooms, tickets to Dollywood during its 2019 Grand Opening Weekend, and passes to Dolly Parton’s Stampede dinner theater. Fans can visit Omaze.com/Dolly to enter for their chance to win. Proceeds support Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

The Omaze campaign integrates special donation bundles including a copy of Parton’s Dumplin’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. VEVO premiered the third music video from the project—following the compelling “Here I Am” (with Sia) and the stunning “Girl In The Movies” – for “Jolene (New String Version)” which saw its broadcast television premiere over the weekend during Parton’s appearance on CMT Hot 20 Countdown. The clip was featured in “Dolly & Friends: Making of a Soundtrack,” a one-hour special which premiered on CMT on Thursday, November 29, 9/8 pm Central Time. The prime-time special featured Parton in the recording studio with famed producer Linda Perry and recording with artists Alison Krauss, Elle King, Macy Gray, Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples and Rhonda Vincent.

Music fans can order now the highly anticipated Dumplin’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The soundtrack, which features Parton on every song, releases November 30, and “Dumplin’” will premiere in select theaters and on Netflix on December 7.

“Dumplin'”

Dumplin’ (Macdonald) is the teenage daughter of a former beauty queen (Aniston), who signs up for her mom’s pageant as a protest that escalates when other contestants follow her footsteps, revolutionizing the pageant and their small Texas town. The Netflix Film stars Macdonald (Bird Box, Patti Cake$) and Aniston (Upcoming Murder Mystery, Horrible Bosses, Marley and Me), in addition to Odeya Rush (Lady Bird, Goosebumps), Dove Cameron (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Liv and Maddie, Descendants), and Harold Perrineau (Claws, Lost). It is directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses).

Screenwriter Kristin Hahn wrote the adaptation of Julie Murphy’s No. 1 New York Times bestselling novel of the same name. Producers include A Cota Films and 50 Degrees Entertainment Presentation – Michael Costigan (American Gangster, A Bigger Splash, Brokeback Mountain, Ghost in the Shell), Hahn (The Switch, Cake), Mohamed AlRafi (Above Suspicion, Lying and Stealing), and Trish Hofmann (Gringo, Get On Up). Executive producers are Aniston and Danny Nozell.
