Dolly Parton's Imagination Library


What is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library?
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a 60-volume set of books beginning with the children’s classic The Little Engine That Could. Each month, a new and carefully selected book will be mailed in your child’s name directly to your home. Best of all, it is a free gift; there is no cost or obligation to your family.
Who is eligible?
Children may receive the books from birth until age 5. Children must reside in Hancock, Harrison, Pearl River or Stone counties.
How do I sign up?
Due to overwhelming demand and available funds being exhausted, we are closing registration at this time. Please watch our social media and website for future updates.
What are my responsibilities?
Be a legal resident of Hancock, Harrison, Pearl River or Stone counties.
Submit an official registration form, completely filled out by parent or guardian. (Form must be approved and on file with United Way of South Mississippi.)
Notify United Way of South Mississippi any time your address changes. Books are mailed to the address listed on the official registration form. If the child’s address changes, you must contact United Way of South Mississippi at 228.896.2213 in order to continue receiving books.
Read with your child.
When will I receive books?
Eight to 10 weeks after your registration form has been received, books will begin arriving at your home and will continue until your child turns age 5 or until you move out of the four-county area.
