Hello Dolly!

“When I was growing up in the hills of East Tennessee, I knew my dreams would come true. I know there are children in your community with their own dreams. They dream of becoming a doctor or an inventor or a minister. Who knows, maybe there is a little girl whose dream is to be a writer and singer.

The seeds of these dreams are often found in books and the seeds you help plant in your community can grow across the world.” – Dolly Parton

SELF is highlighting our partnership with the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library which provides age-appropriate, high-quality books that are mailed each month to enrolled children, birth to age five, at no cost to families.

163,323,148 million. That’s the number of books in the hands of children across the globe thanks to the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. And now SELF has joined the book-giving family, with the goal of raising $160,000 in the first year to buy books for young learners in our own corner of the world.

How is SELF involved?

SELF became a local affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in the summer of 2021. SELF helps raise local funding and enrolls children in the program. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library manages the database, selects, purchases, and mails the books to enrolled families each month.
