Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library was designed to encourage reading to preschool children. Each month after a child is registered – until their fifth birthday – a carefully selected, age-appropriate book is sent to the child’s home. There is no cost to the family; UWSWA provides the books free of charge.
Currently, children living in Choctaw County and Mobile County zip codes 36509, 36582, 36587, 36605, 36610, 36615, or 36617 are eligible.
A total of 585 were served in Mobile County and together received 5,373 books in 2019. In Choctaw County, 112 children were served by Imagination Library and 1,218 books were distributed to them.
UPDATE: Due to the popularity of the Imagination Library, we are at capacity for the program in Mobile County and have put a hold on admissions. Please check back here in July 2020 for updated registration information.
