Dolly Parton - Wilmington To Celebrate Imagination Library


She is everything you dreamed she would be.

She wore something sparkly, colorful, and a bit magical. She joked and charmed and joked some more.

Moreover, she had the audience in the palm of her hand.

One of the country's most beloved musicians, Dolly Parton, came to Wilmington to celebrate Delaware's participation in her Imagination Library program.

Which gives young children a free book every month until they are 5 years old.

As a little girl in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Parton was raised in a home that did not have many books.

She grew up penniless, which later became the backdrop of many of her songs, notably "Coat of Many Colors."

Her father was also illiterate. So Parton started the Imagination Library in his honor.

Decades later, the nonprofit has given out nearly 200 million books. The Imagination Library here in Delaware is now statewide.

Newborns will be registered for the program before leaving the hospital and will be able to receive a book every month until they turn five years old.
