Imagination Library

You might not think that simply getting books into the hands of children would actually help them be better prepared for school, but it’s true. And thanks to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, it has never been easier for a child to build a personal library of his or her own books. Every month more than one million books are mailed to children age 0-5 through the Imagination Library! Shouldn’t your child be one of them?


The Dollywood Foundation administers the program, including all administrative costs, managing the book selection,

covering the postage and providing the website and technical support. In Northwest Kansas, the Dane G. Hansen Foundation

covers the cost of the books. Local affiliate partners take care of registration for the individual counties. A list of the local affiliates is online at
