Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

Regional Lead, Ontario & East Canada

Based in Canada, Ontario & East (remote)


The Company:

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a monthly book gifting program that mails free, high-quality, age-appropriate books to children from birth until their 5th birthday – no matter their family’s income.

After launching in 1995, the program grew quickly. At first, books were only distributed to children living in Sevier County, Tennessee where Dolly grew up. It became such a success that in 2000 a national replication effort was underway. By 2003, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library had mailed one million books. It would prove to be the first of many millions of books sent to children around the world.

From a Toronto stage in November of 2006, Dolly Parton gleefully announced the Canadian expansion of her Imagination Library. It was the first international push for the organization. The development was thanks, in part, to an early agreement with the Canadian-based organization, Invest in Kids, which proved to be just the beginning. Program coverage in Canada spans coast to coast with programs in every Province and Territory in Canada.

The Role:

The Regional Lead plays a crucial role in supporting the growth and development of The Dollywood Foundation's Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program in the assigned region.
