Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Better Basics’ newest program, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, helps parents in low income areas by giving them the tools to help start their child on the path to life-long learning.  Better Basics partners with the United Way of Central Alabama and the Junior League of Birmingham to do something simple and powerful for our community by inspiring parents and caregivers to read to their children.  Each month, from the day a child is born until his or her fifth birthday, a carefully selected book arrives in the mail.  Over those five years, this process will create a home library of up to 60 books and instill a love of books and reading from an early age.
