The living legend, country music icon and philanthropist Dolly Parton visited Washington on Tuesday to commemorate her Imagination Library.
Governor Jay Inslee proclaimed Aug. 15, “Imagination Library of Washington Day” in celebration of the program. If you're not familiar with Dolly's Imagination Library, it's a pretty awesome thing that she does as it allows kids from the time they're born to age five to register to receive one free book every month from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.
Currently, more than 70,000 kids in Washington are enrolled in the Imagination Library free book program. More than 1.6 million books have been gifted to children around the state since the program began in Washington.
The whole concept of Imagination Library was inspired by Dolly's father and now the program reaches five different countries and more than 200 million books were gifted worldwide.
