Dolly Parton launched the Imagination Library program in 1996 because she wanted to make sure that children have books in their homes, regardless of family income. This program sends one brand new, age-appropriate book in the mail each month to an enrolled child until their fifth birthday. Every child will receive the classic The Little Engine That Could at the beginning of the program and will receive Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come when they graduate the program.
Is your child eligible?
- Your child resides in Hall, Hamilton, Howard or Merrick County.
- Your child is under the age of five.
How do I register my child?
It’s easy! Select “Agree to Terms of Service” and then the “Agree and Continue” button below. Follow the prompts to complete your child’s registration. If you register with an email address, a confirmation of your child’s registration will be sent to you once your request is approved. A parent login is also available below for parents already enrolled. If you have questions about the program, please see the Frequently Asked Question section below.
Change of Address:
If your child’s address changes while they are enrolled in the Imagination Library, you must contact the Heartland United Way in order to continue receiving a book each month. Please note that the books cannot be forwarded by the U.S. Postal Service. If a child has books that are undeliverable for two months, their registration will be automatically deleted. If you registered with your email address on the Imagination Library website, you may log in and update your child’s current mailing address.
