Our library is partnering with the United Way of Greater Topeka to bring a unique early years book gifting program to Shawnee County called Dolly’s Parton Imagination Library.

The program mails a brand new, age-appropriate book every month to enrolled children from birth to age five, creating a home library of up to 60 books to read and share with parents. Imagination Library instills a love of books and reading from an early age. Studies show that participation in the program positively and significantly improves early childhood literacy.

For just $25 a year one child in Shawnee County can participate. We want all 12,519 children ages birth to five to take part in the program. Our goal is to raise $1 million so we can provide a sustainable program to help ensure a bright future for all Shawnee County children. Give the gift of reading today.
