Strengthening Denver through Literacy

The Imagination Library of Denver works to increase access to age-appropriate books & promote kindergarten readiness.
We're part of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library - a book gifting program providing 1 book each month until a child's 5th birthday.

But we mail more than just books! For almost 30 years Dolly Parton's Imagination Library has been studied and shown that our program increases kindergarten readiness, home literacy practices, and fosters a love of books. 
Simple. Efficient. Cost-Effective. Measurable. Proven.

Currently enrolling children living in these neighborhoods: 80205, 80211, 80220 & 80216

    “My son absolutely loves his Dolly Books & I can see them helping to facilitate a love of reading. A recent book, 'I Just Want to Say Goodnight’ made him jump out of bed with excitement. When he recognized himself in the character and opened up a whole new way to enjoy reading.”
