ARKANSAS IMAGINATION LIBRARY

 Arkansas Imagination Library’s mission is to increase literacy in Arkansas by ensuring all young children across the state may participate in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Arkansas Imagination Library believes reading begins at birth, the benefits of a home library go far beyond the books, and parents/guardians are a child’s first and best teacher. By providing books at no cost to families, the Imagination Library increases childhood literacy rates, fosters a love of books, and promotes a culture of reading among underserved families in high-risk communities of Arkansas.
