Dolly Parton's Imagination Library remains popular in Door County

All kids should read books, and the Door County Partnership for Children and Families has a free way for your little one to get a new book each month. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a program she started which is a free book gifting program for kids aged five and under that Door County participates in. Door County joined the program in 2019 and there are certain geographic areas around the country where the program operates. Kids enrolled in the program get a monthly book mailed to them that’s tailored to their age group. 


Door County started mailing the books in January of 2019, and instantly smashed expectations, according to Chad Welch, the partnership’s community impact coordinator.



Welch says their network of local agencies they partner with helped the program get the word out and grow fast. There are around 1100 kids between the ages of 0 and 5 in Door County, and they’d like to get all of them enrolled. Welch says at their highest point they had over 700 kids enrolled in mid-2020. There is roughly a month between sign up and when your toddler is enrolled into the mailing process. More information on the program can be found here.
