Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

The four Rotary clubs in Josephine County have teamed up with Josephine Community Library District and Josephine County Library Foundation to bring the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to families in our community.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free books to children every month from birth to age five in participating communities. Through this program, every child under the age of five in Josephine County is qualified to receive a book by mail, at no cost to their families, every month until their fifth birthday.


Register your children for FREE thanks to funding from Rotary, AllCare Health, and Josephine County Library Foundation.

Here’s how:

  1. Stop by your nearest library branch in Grants Pass, Illinois Valley, Williams, or Wolf Creek and fill out a paper registration form, or
  2. Clicking here to use this convenient Online Registration Form.
  3. Please note that it may take up to 8–10 weeks to receive the first book. After that, age-appropriate books will arrive monthly.

The first book every child receives is The Little Engine That Could, which is Dolly Parton’s favorite book. The message of the book is timeless, encouraging children to never give up, do their best, and stay positive no matter what. See the complete list of books from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

This program is FREE — your only obligation is to notify the library in case of an address change.

Sponsors for this program include AllCare Health, Grants Pass Rotary Club Foundation, Oregon Community Foundation, the four Rotary Clubs in Josephine County, and Welch Investment Group, LLC.
