Dolly Parton's Imagination Library of Knox County
When you support Imagination Library, you are directly helping a young family in Knox County set a solid foundation for their children both in school and in life.

Ready for kindergarten!

Did you know that in Knox County, it costs $500,000 each year to deliver books to over 20,000 kids each month? Half of the cost of the books are paid by the Governors Early Literacy Foundation, but we need supporters like YOU to help cover the rest. Our community must raise $1.25 for every book that is delivered.

Each $15 gift will buy books for one child for an entire year! You can make a one-time donation or easily set up a recurring gift each month. Give the gift of reading to a young child in Knox County today!

Are you the family of a graduate?

Congratulations, graduate! Thank you for taking the time to read to your child every day. Reading with little ones is so special. Remember, reading doesn't have to stop just because your child has graduated from Imagination Library. With a Knox County Public Library card, you'll always have plenty of books available to you and your family.

Please consider paying your time in Imaginaton Library forward with a donation to the Knox County Imagination Library. Your gift will sponsor a child with an entire year of new, high-quality, age-appropriate books from the same program that you and your child grew to love.
