Dolly Parton Imagination Library

In July 2019, we introduced Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to Pettis County. The Dolly Parton's Imagination Library provides age appropriate, high-quality books each month to registered children birth through age five at no expense to the family. These books are hand selected and addressed to the child. United Way of Pettis County covers the expense for all Pettis County qualifying children because we understand that giving children access to books allows for supported cognitive development, improved language skills, preparation for academic success, increased concentration, and improved imagination and creativity.
