Camden Public Library Brings Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to Knox County!

Camden Public Library is proud to announce that it will be a Local Program Partner for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, the world’s preeminent early childhood book-gifting program. Children aged 0 to 5 in Knox County or within the Five Town Community School District can now sign up to receive an age-appropriate book every month, delivered to their home for free.

Families can register their child through the Imagination Library website or by clicking here.

Local donors are generously underwriting half the cost of Camden Public Library’s affiliate program, and Maine State Library is funding the rest. Participating in the Imagination Library is always completely free for families.

“We are thrilled to offer this program to the children of Knox County,” says Nikki Maounis, Executive Director of Camden Public Library. “One of our most important missions is to create and nurture young readers and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library helps us to accomplish just that.”


About Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Since launching in 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has become the preeminent early childhood book-gifting program in the world. The flagship program of The Dollywood Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has gifted well over 182 million free books in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and The Republic of Ireland. The Imagination Library mails more than 2 million high-quality, age-appropriate books each month to enrolled children from birth to age five. Dolly envisioned creating a lifelong love of reading, inspiring children to dream more, learn more, care more and be more. The impact of the program has been widely researched and results suggest positive increases in key early childhood literacy metrics. Penguin Random House is the exclusive publisher for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. For more information, please visit imaginationlibrary.com.
