Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until their 5th birthday, no matter their family’s income.
In an effort to improve early literacy for Lake County’s children and help prepare them for kindergarten, the Lake County Office of Education began participating in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in 2012. This program has grown to provide books to over 2,250 Lake County children annually.
Although the books from Imagination Library are free for the children, there is an associated cost to the Lake County Office of Education of $25 per child, per year. Administered by LCOE, this program is funded by donations from local businesses, community organizations and individuals. We are thankful to our current major donors First 5 Lake, Adventist Health Clearlake, Charlotte Griswold, and the Lake County Wine Alliance.
To register your children for free books, please visit the Imagination Library website.
