Our Mission

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're more than just mailing books! For almost 30 years Dolly Parton's Imagination Library has been studied and shown that our program is
Simple. Efficient. Cost-Effective. Measurable. Proven.

Now enrolling in neighborhoods in 80205, 80211, 80220, 80216. 

News & Notes

Meditation is powerful. If you’re still unsure whether or not the practice is worth trying, check out these top benefits of meditation and consider how they can help improve your life.

When bad things happen, how do we act individually, and how can we come together as a society? How can we be kind in times of darkness?

Whether it’s a few hours or a long commitment, volunteering not only supports those around you but positively influences you as well.

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 3 Denver zip codes: 80205, 80211, 80220, and 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.”
