Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is our biggest program. IL Books are a gift to the child, at no cost to their family.
That's because The BBBP pays Imagination Library books and mailing costs monthly for children we register. Just $25 covers our cost of 12 new, excellent books delivered to a child over 12 months; $125 covers a full 5 years of books.
Retail cost for the 60 excellent Imagination Library books would be around $500 -- not including delivery.
Priceless, and not available on any shelf: the excitement of a child when their gift book arrives in the mail.
Any level of support is greatly appreciated. Annual or monthly donations are extra valuable. At $2.11 per child/per book, all donations help ensure we can confidently continue to grow our IL Program and help us show foundation funders this community values the Program.
