About Imagination Library

Imagination Library is an early childhood education initiative which provides FREE books to children, from birth to age five.  Once enrolled the child will receive a new, age appropriate book delivered in their name to their home once monthly until their fifth birthday as long as they are a resident of the UWNEMN service area (Iron Range, Koochiching County, and Lake of the Woods County).  

UWNEMN initiated the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program in 2008.  More than 300,000 books have since been delivered to children in our service area.
