Dolly Parton, Country Music Queen, Amusement Park Maven, Singer Songwriter Extradordinare, International Book Lady & True American Treasure is the reason more than 1.5 million children are mailed a book each month around the world. A child enrolled at birth will build a robust 60-volume home library, theirs to keep — all completely free to families no matter their income. It is the time BEFORE children start school where the love of books is fostered, and we want to mail every child in Denver their very own library.
Currently, there are 2,000 kids here in Denver receiving books from Imagination Library Denver and there are at least 50,000 children eligible.
Let's celebrate our badass book founder, Dolly Parton with an incredible mural as big as her heart.
We want this mural to showcase our beloved Dolly and bring attention her book program, Imagination Library right here in Denver.
While COVID has closed libraries, in-person schooling, early childhood community programs and we're all stuck inside more than we want to be, books can take imaginations to the zoo, outerspace, and anywhere we can dream of going.
Help us celebrate with the biggest, brightest, and bookiest mural Denver has ever seen.
All the proceeds will pay to purchase the art supplies and the artist, and the remaining funds will use to fund the Imagination Library Denver books and program.
