Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library brings books to children’s homes. From birth until they turn five years old, children enrolled in the program who live in Berrien or Cass County will receive a new, age-appropriate book mailed to their home each month. By the time they enter kindergarten, children will have their own library of books and be more prepared to enter school and become readers.
