Dolly Parton Imagination Library

1 Book Can Make a Difference

In Louisiana, only 57.1% of children are entering kindergarten ready to learn.  To better prepare the Capital Area's youngest readers for successful literacy in kindergarten, CAUW and several of our community partners have teamed with Imagination Library to provide children 5 and under with a monthly, age-appropriate book mailed directly to their home. Our local efforts are part of the successful national program founded by Dolly Parton in her home state of Tennessee. Currently, Imagination Library is accepting children in the following Capital Area parishes Ascension, Pointe Coupee, and West Feliciana Parishes.
