Through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, children, birth to age 5, are mailed a free, age appropriate book every month. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library supplies the books while United Way raises funds through special events and writing grants to cover the cost of shipping the books, which is about $35 a year, per child.

Currently, over 2,000 children in Southwest Wyoming are enrolled in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Southwest Wyoming, and over 800 have graduated from the program.
