Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Funding bedtime stories in Tarrant County homes since 2008.

In Tarrant County, only 36% of third-grade students read proficiently, a more than 7% drop since the COVID-19 pandemic began.* Research shows that young children with access to books in their homes are much more likely to read at grade level – but that access is limited for thousands of families in our community. 

We are taking a pause on new enrollments this summer. Please check back in the fall for updates.
