Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

In 1995, inspired by her father's inability to read or write, Dolly Parton launched the Imagination Library to nurture a love of reading and learning among young children. 

The program provides free books every month to children from birth through age 5.

The ACPL is thrilled to partner with the Imagination Library of Indiana to bring the program to Allen County families. In order to launch the program, the ACPL Foundation is committed to raising $100,000 in donor funds and YOU can be a part of it!

No gift is too big or too small! Check out how far your gift can stretch per year:

$26 supports one child 

$132 supports five children

$264 supports ten children

$528 supports twenty children


Match Alert: the State of Indiana has approved matching funds for this project through its Next Level Agenda. That means your gift will DOUBLE its impact if you give now! No additional steps are needed.
