Raising Dollars for Dolly's Imagination Library

Dolly Parton may be best known for her soulful country music, but for the past two decades she's poured her heart and soul into promoting early childhood literacy. As we celebrate the 12-year anniversary of our own literacy program called, 7Reads, and on the heels of our annual United Way campaign, it's the perfect time to highlight the importance of reading by supporting Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Sponsored locally by our United Way of the Piedmont, the Imagination Library delivers age-appropriate books every month to children ages birth to five, and just $30 enrolls a child for one year.
 
Currently, there is a waiting list for more than 500 children hoping to join the program. So, District 7 is raising Dollars for Dolly!
 
Our schools and classrooms will be collecting funds during the week of December 10 and it's our hope you will join us by making a donation at:
 
Long live the Imagination Library and thank you for helping us support our littlest learners!
