On February 27 Dolly Parton will be at the Library of Congress to dedicate the 100 Millionth book in her Imagination Library program to the Library of Congress collection. The dedication will be live-streaming on Youtube at 10am.
Dolly's Imagination Library has been giving free books to children in select communities around the world every month from birth to age 5. Dolly started the program because her own father was unable to read or write, and that kept him from doing many things he had wished to do in his life. The Imagination Library's mission is to get children to love reading and learning at an early age.
