Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Monett Families, 

We are excited to share information about an incredible opportunity to spark children’s lifelong interest in reading. Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a program dedicated to instilling a passion for books and is now available to every child under the age of five in Missouri. While Monett has been enjoying the benefits of this fantastic program for a while, we're excited to share about its expansion to children throughout the entire state.

What makes this program unique? Each month, children under the age of five will receive a specially selected, age-appropriate book delivered right to their doorstep, free of charge. 

For parents whose children are already enjoying the benefits of the Imagination Library, we're happy to inform that they will automatically be transitioned into the new statewide program. Families looking to register a new participant should visit the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library national website linked here to sign up. Monett will be under Barry County on the website. Once signed up, the child will receive a FREE new book every month. We were advised to wait a few days after the initial announcement on November 8th to share this wonderful opportunity, anticipating high traffic on the website. As of this afternoon, the website is fully operational and open for families to register again.

The Imagination Library is not just about receiving books, it's about opening doors to new worlds and ideas for children. With over 200 million free books gifted globally since 1995, the program has been a shining example of learning and inspiration. 

The library includes bilingual Spanish and English books. Additionally, the Imagination Library website provides services in Spanish for those who prefer this language option.

It's important to note that the first book might take 9-12 weeks to arrive after registration, but the wait is well worth it. Sign up now and witness your child begin an enriching journey of discovery, learning, and development with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.
