Champaign County children under age five can sign up for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library and receive a children's book delivered to their home every month. There is no cost to your family to take part in the program. Your child will get a new book in the mail every month until they turn five. 

The United Way of Clark, Champaign & Madison Counties formed a coalition of local educators, libraries, and community partners dedicated to early childhood literacy in order to bring the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to children of this area.  Click on the link below to register online or to print out an application.
