On 11 February, leaders from Rotary, United Way, and The Dollywood Foundation gathered in Melbourne, Australia, to launch the country’s Dolly Parton Imagination Library initiative. The partners have set an aggressive goal to register 10,000 young children to the program before the end of the calendar year.
By working with local leaders, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library provides age appropriate reading materials to children from birth until age five.
Imagination Library, currently available in Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and now Australia, helps children foster a passion for reading and learning from an early age. For more information, visit Imagination Library and read more about the launch in Australia.
