How it Works
As a Local Program Partner of the Imagination Library, the Cape Vincent Library enrolls local children ages 0-5 in our community in the DPIL database. The Imagination Library then coordinates monthly book orders with the Blue Ribbon Book Selection Committee, delivering free books directly to your child! This program is made possible thanks to a grant from the Daisy Marquis Jones Foundation.

Since launching in 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has become the preeminent early childhood book gifting program in the world. The flagship program of The Dollywood Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has gifted over 200 million free books in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and The Republic of Ireland. This is achieved through funding shared by The Dollywood Foundation and Local Program Partners. The Imagination Library mails more than 2 million high-quality, age-appropriate books each month to enrolled children from birth to age five. Dolly envisioned creating a lifelong love of reading and inspiring children to Dream More, Learn More, Care More, and Be More®.
The program has been widely researched and results demonstrate the positive impact on early childhood development and literacy skills. Penguin Random House is the exclusive publisher for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
