Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is dedicated to inspiring a love of reading by gifting books free of charge to children from birth to age five, through funding shared by Dolly Parton and local community partners here in Lexington, Kentucky. 

Our goal is to open registration to Fayette County families in the summer of 2022. There are approximately 19,000 children under age five and eligible to receive books in Lexington. Help us serve them by donating today. 


Any size donation is accepted and appreciated

Research shows that early childhood literacy is the key to academic success. This program is just one way The Fayette Education Foundation is working to ensure all our community’s children have the advantage they need when starting kindergarten.
