Tennessee Families Receive the Gift of Books

The Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation was created in 2004 to allow Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to be available to every child in the state of Tennessee. With funding support from the Tennessee General Assembly, various foundations, individual donors, small businesses, and a host of private corporate partners, all children from birth to age five are eligible to receive books at no cost to families, regardless of income

How It Works

1. Tennessee parents enroll  their children into Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
​2. One age-appropriate book, selected by a blue ribbon committee of childhood education experts, arrives at your home each month until your child's fifth birthday. 

It's that easy. Happy reading!
