What is Dolly Parton's Imagination Library?

Part of early childhood learning includes reading.  Teaching your child to read early has multiple benefits and is the key to your child's academic future. This is why TFAE has partnered with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to provide books to the community in the most cost effective manner. As the local champion, TFAE promotes the program, registers children and secures funding to continue the program in Terrebonne parish.

Together, this partnership provides children within the community a free book every month from birth until they reach 5 years of age.  The goal is to enable children to read age appropriate books by the time they enter school.

Millions of children under the age of five, in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom, receive books from the Imagination Library each month.  Over 1 BILLION books have been mailed to children since the program began in 1996.

More than 1.2 million children receive Imagination Library books worldwide.  TFAE has been responsible for funding over 250,000 books in Terrebonne!
How it works usa

How does it work?

Terrebonne Parish children ages 0-5 can be registered in the program to receive books. There is no cost to your family.

TFAE funds every book delivered to local children. With 3,000-3,300 kids enrolled at any given month, this program costs TFAE approximately $75,000 each year.

With the help of donations and grants, TFAE is currently able to offer the program to all that enroll without a waiting list.

Please consider "passing on the gift of reading" by sponsoring a local child in the program. A gift of just $25 sponsors a child for 1 year and a gift of $125 sponsors a child for 5 years.
