As a Community Partner, the Newport News Public Library is excited to announce that all Newport News children ages 0 – 5 are eligible to participate in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. As the world’s preeminent early childhood book-gifting program, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library mails high quality, age-appropriate books to children from birth to age five in partnership with The DeGood Foundation. Over the course of enrollment, a personal library of as many as 60 books is created, helping form the foundation of a child’s early reading experience. The goal is to establish the educational foundation for children to ensure their success in kindergarten and the remainder of their K-12 education.
Registration is required. Paper applications are available at all Newport News Public Library branches. The paper applications may be submitted at the library branches or they may be mailed to: The DeGood Foundation, 11817 Canon Blvd Suite 402, Newport News, VA 23606.
