Imagination Library Week 2017

By Betty Barber, Imagination Library Coordinator for Perry County

Perry County Friends of the Library is very proud to be the champion of the Imagination Library of Perry County. For 13 years this volunteer organization has raised funds to purchase age-appropriate books for children up to age 5 in Perry County. This is accomplished in conjunction with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation.


Since 2004 Friends of the Library of Perry County have purchased more than 40,000 books, which were mailed directly to the children’s homes at no cost to their families. Providing an opportunity for our youngest residents to explore books encourages literacy, as well as imagination, problem-solving, empathy, confidence, and laughter. These are all abilities necessary for achieving quality employment as an adult.

The Imagination Library continues to thrive in our county, distributing 330 books each month to 73% of the county’s children under age 5! Thank you for your 13 years of support for this effort. Your participation in this project for our children’s future is genuinely appreciated.

It takes only $12 per year to sponsor one child’s participation in the Imagination Library. Please consider sending a donation of any amount to:

Friends of the Library for Imagination Library
Attn: Betty Barber
104 College Avenue
Linden, Tennessee 37096

Imagination Library Week is a perfect time to make sure that all the children under age 5 in your family are registered. Registration of children is ongoing at both public libraries in Linden and Lobelville. You may also visit www.imaginationlibrary.com to register children and to learn more.

The Dolly Parton Imagination Library provides age appropriate books for children from birth to 5 years old. Be sure to register your child. It's free!
