Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library hits 200,000 book milestone in Flint, MI


Over 200,000 books have been given out to children in Flint, Michigan thanks to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

“In a year when the world seemingly turned upside down, the monthly home delivery of books to our youngest Flint kids has been a dependable source of enrichment. With reading as one of the most important prescriptions for healthy and successful children, I am thrilled that we have achieved the incredible 200,000 book milestone,” Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the Director for Pediatric Public Health Initiative, stated, according to M Live.

The first book from Imagination Library was mailed to a young Flint resident back in 2017. The program began after a Foundation for Flint grant was awarded in response to the water crisis.

Almost 10,000 children have been served through the program.
