Greetings #TeamLCPS Families!

First and foremost, THANK YOU for your continued support this school year. As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, please know that we are most thankful for you, your child, and your entire family. Again, thank you!

Today, we are writing to you with EXCITING news. At Louisa County Public Schools, we are huge supporters of childhood literacy, and a new program has arrived in Louisa County that will help this cause tremendously!

Thanks in large part to the hard work put forth by members of the Louisa County Rotary Foundation and volunteers with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library committee, Louisa County residents are now eligible to participate in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program! This is an incredible program that provides FREE, high-quality books each month to all children ages 4 and under. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library distributes books to more than 2 million children each month and has received the Best Practices Award from the U.S. Library of Congress. 

If your family has a child that is four years old or younger, here is how the registration/delivery process works:

  • Step 1: Visit (This link is also available on our school website). Enter your Louisa County address and complete the validation process)

  • Step 2: Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will validate your mailing address/email address. This process can take up to 90 days.

  • Step 3: Once validated, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will mail your child one free, high-quality book each month until they reach the age of 5!

So, if you have a child that is 4 years old (or younger), we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity! Studies have shown that reading to young children assists with language development, instills emotional awareness, and helps families develop an even stronger bond through storytelling!

Once again, we are very grateful to the Louisa County Rotary Foundation for their work to bring this opportunity to families here in Louisa County. If you have any questions or need assistance with the application process, please contact the Louisa County chapter of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library by calling 540-967-5900 or by emailing [email protected]

Thanks again and have a fantastic day!
