Rotary International and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library have an ongoing partnership to put books into the hands of children in communities both large and small all across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
Since 2009, Rotary International has been working with the Imagination Library to promote early childhood reading. Through the Imagination Library program, a child receives an age-appropriate book each month until age five. Rotary clubs have teamed up with Dolly to bring books to children in more than 300 communities.
In the video above, Dolly thanks Rotarians “for all you continue to do for my Imagination Library.” In honor of International Literacy Day 8 September, read more about Rotary’s work with the Imagination Library. Dollywood Foundation President David Dotson also praised Rotary’s influence in a recent blog post for Rotary Voices.
