The San Diego Council on Literacy is a proud coordinator of Dolly Parton’s “Imagination Library” program. This program results in books being mailed, every month, to the homes of low-income children, ages 0-5, in selected local zip codes. For $25.00 a year, a child receives 12 books.
Currently being served are children residing in these zip codes: 92102, 92105, 92113, 92114, 92116, 92054, 92057, and 92058.
The Dollywood Foundation invites communities to sponsor a local chapter of this program. Both the SDCOL and BASIC, an SDCOL affiliated literacy program in Borrego Springs, are the sole coordinators of Imagination Library programs in the region.
The program also operates in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia. Last year, in its 25th year of operation, the Dollywood Foundation celebrated the donation of its 150 millionth book.
Thank you to the First Five Commission of San Diego County, The Wise Family Fund, the David C. Copley Foundation, the Beta Delta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma in Oceanside, and others who have donated funds to this program. If you are interested in contributing to Imagination Library, use this link to make a donation of $25 per child.
