A Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Local Champion
Four great charities and now TOT4TOT.
TOT4TOT works with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (imaginationlibrary.com) Affiliate First Library (firstlibrary.org) to help deliver free, high quality, age-appropriate books directly to the homes of children, newborn to age five at no cost to their family. It also supports, through fundraising efforts, PJ Library (pjlibrary.org), another free monthly book program.
With over 150,000,000 books mailed to children in the United States and beyond and over one million children receiving new books each and every month TOT4TOT will be able to help bring more free books monthly to preschool children across the United States with every donation.
Free books for preschool children
Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a nationwide free book gifting program that handles the selection and delivery of free books to children from birth to age 5 monthly.
These free books from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library are a mixture of classic and contemporary fiction and non-fiction for children.
The Imagination Library program is paid for by Ms. Parton’s Dollywood Foundation and a local sponsoring affiliate, such as First Library.
Affiliates, such as First Library, promote, register, manage, and pay all book, mailing and program costs while the Dollywood Foundation manages the book selection and delivery database system.
Free books for newborn children
First Library is a early childhood literacy program that promotes reading, book ownership, and library patronage.
Children registered in their literacy program receive a free, brand new, age-appropriate book each month until the age of 5 through Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.
Parents are asked to read to daily and are required to visit their local library monthly.
Parents, the majority in need / all in need can also receive additional free books with increased participation through their More First Library program.
Free books for Jewish children
