Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Dolly Parton performed her heart out last night at the Chicago Theatre. She told the story behind many of her classic songs and reflected on her childhood in the Smoky Mountains. In 1996, Dolly launched her Imagination Library to show the children of Tennesse the power and beauty of books. Dolly mailed a copy of The Little Engine who Could to every child under age five in Sevier County, Tennessee. The program was such a success that Dolly expanded it across the country and now provides books to hundreds of thousands of children. For more information about the program and to learn how to get involved, visit http://www.dollysimaginationlibrary.com/home.php.
