Welcome to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library!

Sign up your children under 5 years old to receive FREE monthly books from the Imagination Library.

An Initiative of The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County

FREE books for ALL children under 5 years old who are residents of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County

The Community Foundation wants every child in our area under 5 years old to have a consistent and reliable source of high-quality books. Through the Imagination Library, children will create home libraries and build literacy until they turn five years old. We are changing children’s stories one book at a time.

*Registrations received within 10 weeks of the child’s 5th birthday cannot be processed in time for the child to receive a book from the Imagination Library.

We are very excited to announce that we have a $250,000 match gift from an anonymous donor to build the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Endowment. For every dollar raised, up to $250,000, the donor will match each gift, dollar for dollar. This Endowment will help fund the on-going cost of the program. An opportunity like this one seldom has never before seen at our Community Foundation. Help us create something wonderful for our area’s children under five years old.

You can help us reach a total $500,000! Learn how you can make a difference for Harrisonburg-Rockingham children at: GIVE TO DOLLY PARTON’S IMAGINATION LIBRARY ENDOWMENT
