Imagination Library: FREE Books for Your Child!

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library logoGet FREE BOOKS mailed monthly to your child at your home through the Miami County Imagination Library, a partnership with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. All children in Miami County are eligible and there is no cost or obligation to your family. Register now!

What is Imagination Library? The Imagination Library is a 60-volume home library for preschool children. It was created to stimulate children’s imaginations and encourage reading within the family at an early age. A panel of educators selects the books for the library each year, always beginning the series with a special copy of “The Little Engine That Could.” Each child enrolled in the program will receive one book each month by mail.

Who is eligible? All children in Miami County are eligible until their fifth birthday.

How is the program funded? By donations from the community. If you want to donate to a reading program for all of Miami County in which 100 PERCENT of all donations are passed on directly to the children, donate to Imagination Library. NO monies go to administrative costs! 

Checks can be sent to the Troy library. Please put Imagination Library in the memo line. Imagination is for ALL children from birth to age 5 in Miami County. There is no cost to children enrolled or their families. The program is currently being partially funded by the United Way of Troy, Piqua Area United Way, Tipp City Area United Way, The Troy Foundation, the Miami County Foundation, the Piqua Community Foundation, and the Friends of the Library. The program is also funded by the generosity of former Troy resident, now deceased, named Ada Pressman. Anyone in the community interested in funding the program may sponsor a child for a year by sending $25 to the Troy-Miami County Public Library, attn. Imagination Library, 419 W. Main St., Troy, Ohio 45373. The library is a 501c3 so contributions are tax deductible.
