Why support the Library?

My First Bookshelf

Together, we can fill a child’s very first bookshelf

My First Bookshelf, in partnership with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, is a free program that delivers to a child’s home a new book once a month from birth to age five. For many children, these will be the first books they will ever own.

YOU can give a child their very first book!

Will you help us put books on a child’s shelf?
