mom_reading_to_babyOne of the best ways we can give is to read to our children.  Albion is lucky to be participating in a program that will provide your baby with a free book each month up until the age of 5.

The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a FREE program where each month, from the day a child is born until his/her fifth birthday, a carefully selected book arrives in the mail.

Dolly1 About Dolly Parton

Parton is the most honored female country performer of all time. Parton was born in Sevier County, Tennessee, the fourth of twelve children.  She has described her family as being “dirt poor”. Parton’s father paid the doctor who helped deliver her with a bag of oatmeal.

Her literacy program, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library,a part of the Dollywood Foundation, mails one book per month to each enrolled child from the time of their birth until they enter kindergarten. Currently over 1600 local communities provide the Imagination Library to almost 700,000 children each and every month across the U.S., Canada, the UK, and Australia.
