You have the power to place more books in the hands and homes of children by aiding our efforts to expand Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and keep it available right here in Northwest Louisiana.

The Imagination Library is currently available in 71004, 71006, 71064, 71103, 71106, 71109, 71111, and 71112 of Caddo and Bossier Parishes and all of Desoto, Red River, Sabine, Natchitoches, and Webster Parishes. We are proud to say that thanks to our generous supporters, we have become the largest provider of the Imagination Library in the state and have even begun targeted enrollment for children living in 71107 and 71108. However, we are ambitious and believe EVERY child should have access to books which is why we won’t stop until we can offer the Imagination Library throughout all of Northwest Louisiana.

Children in some of our region’s most impoverished areas are still without access to books, leaving them without the social and developmental tools necessary to be successful in school or later in life.

it takes approximately $250,000 to renew the Imagination Library where it’s currently offered. Additional funding is needed to expand the program throughout our entire 10-parish region.

Join us and help more children become kindergarten ready by becoming a United Way Book Club member today when you give at one of the levels listed below. A contribution of $50 has the power to sponsor a child in the Imagination Library for one year. New members will receive a limited-edition bookmark to show our gratitude. No other obligations for the Book Club are required.

On behalf of the children you have helped prepare for kindergarten and beyond, THANK YOU for your compassion, generosity, and for truly making a difference in the lives of our youth. We believe that a community filled with books is a community filled with opportunity and possibilities!
