We have delivered 27,588 books over the past 3 years, and 1,948 babies and toddlers are now receiving monthly books through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Charleston County. As a consequence of this in-home, monthly delivery, participating parents are spending more time reading to their babies, and — even before they can read themselves — these children are building the pre-literacy skills that will help them in everything they do in school and in life.
