Strengthening Denver Through Literacy

Our mission is simple: To increase access to age-appropriate books
and promote kindergarten readiness.
But we're more than just about simply delivering books - we're here to inspire a love of reading, foster love for books,
and home literacy practices!
Studies show the longer a child is enrolled in Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, the more a child is prepared for school and tests higher in third-grade competencies. 

A few of the neighborhoods we currently serve: 

Five Points Whittier Elyria-Swansea
North Washington Northeast Park Hill Globeville
Sunnyside Curtis Park East Colfax
Cole Chaffee Park Old San Rafael
LoHi North Federal Blvd Clayton

News & Notes

In 2020, you might be wondering if being happy is something you could admit to—but even during challenging times, there are ways to boost your mood and try to celebrate the good things in life.

When it comes to living an altruistic life that can help make a difference for others, one of the most valuable things you can give your community is the gift of volunteering.

On average, a new habit takes approximately 30 days to develop, so don’t get discouraged if you struggle at first. Remain positive and focused on the goal.

Our focus is simple: More Books.

Each month, children enrolled in Dolly Parton's Imagination Library receives one high-quality and age-appropriate book in the mail to build their love for reading. Our affiliate currently serves 4 Denver zip codes: 80205, 80211, 80220, and 80216.

    "We love the high-quality books that Imagination Library sends our 2 kids. We probably wouldn't be able to otherwise afford the number of books we have. Thank you!
