GARLAND COUNTY IMAGINATION LIBRARY

Garland County Imagination Library’s mission is to increase literacy in Garland, Montgomery and Pike Counties by ensuring all young children may participate in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Garland County Imagination Library believes reading begins at birth, the benefits of a home library go far beyond the books, and parents/guardians are a child’s first and best teacher. By providing books at no cost to families, the Imagination Library increases childhood literacy rates, fosters a love of books, and promotes a culture of reading among families in Garland, Montgomery, and Pike Counties.
