Exciting news for parents and preschool children in Chester County! Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is now available in Chester County! Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library works with local affiliates to mail free, high-quality books to preschool children once a month, no matter their family’s income.
The Chester County Imagination Library is powered locally by Arts Holding Hands and Hearts (AHHAH) in partnership with Looker Books, the Justamere Foundation, and the Kennett Library. Our goal through this program is to increase literacy levels for preschool age children living in Chester County, PA, to provide opportunities for positive family experiences and engagement, and to foster a love of reading in the Chester County community.
All children, from birth to age five, who live in Chester County.
There is NO income or donation requirement to participate.
Children receive new, free, high-quality, and age appropriate books.
Each title is selected by a panel of early childhood literacy experts, who choose books to meet the age-specific developmental needs of young children.
Books are mailed directly to children's homes in Chester County.
Once registered, children will receive their first book within 6-8 weeks and will continue receiving one book per month until they reach age five.
Many children in Chester County are reading below grade level. This program will help to close the word gap and raise literacy levels in the Chester County community.
Share the program and registration link with eligible families and/or donate as an individual or a sponsor.
The Chester County Imagination Library is a community supported program. It is funded by donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals like you!
