Every Kansas child from birth to age 5 can receive free books every month from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. 

This is made possible through increased funding provided to the Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund by Gov. Laura Kelly and the Kansas Legislature. These funds supplement local and regional resources to ensure equitable opportunity across the state. 

Parton was inspired by her father’s inability to read and write, so she started the Imagination Library to help encourage children to read. 

Each child enrolled in the program receives one book per month until his or her fifth birthday - at no cost to families. Penguin Random House is the exclusive publisher of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. For more information, please visit imaginationlibrary.com.
