Imagination Library

Welcome to the Imagination Library

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library puts books into the hands and hearts of children across the Sea to Sky Community.

The Imagination Library provides a specially selected, high-quality book each month to participating children from birth to age 5. These books are personalized with each child’s name and mailed directly to them to create a gifting experience that makes books exciting and encourages families to spend time enjoying books together.

Children who are read to early in life are better prepared for school. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has been shown to significantly increase the time parents and caregivers spend reading to their children each week.

The presence of books in the home supports the child’s academic, social, and emotional development. Children develop a special bond with their parents and caregivers by reading together. The Imagination Library is available to all children at no cost to the family.

Sea to Sky Families can register for the Imagination Library through the S.P.A.R.K program [link to S.P.A.R.K. page). For more information on how to register, reach out Ruby Bhangoo [link to Ruby’s email], Early Years Coordinator.

Since the Imagination Library for Sea to Sky began in 2017, 411 children have graduated from the program and 564 are participating.
