Dolly Parton's Imagination Library


Register your child online at:


Reading to a child everyday for 20 minutes is one of the most powerful ways to ensure a child will be ready to be successful upon entering school and throughout their lives. 


Children ages birth to five years old living within the Lake Stevens School District boundary are eligible to register to receive a free age-appropriate book mailed each month until their 5th birthday.


Community Sponsorship Opportunity - Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library mails books to 750 preschool age children in Lake Stevens every month!


Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a unique opportunity to do something simple and powerful for our community, provide children access to quality books and inspire parents and caregivers to read to their children. Studies show that children who are read to everyday are more successful in school and in life.  Over 2,500 children living in Lake Stevens have received books since 2008!  


While the books are free to the children and their family, the cost to sponsor a child for one year of books is $25.


100% of your tax-deductible donation to the Lake Stevens Education Foundation to sponsor children in the Dolly Parton Library goes directly to books for children in our community.


Please help us sustain this wonderful program. The cost to sponsor a child for one year is $25.

  100 children = $2500          50 children = $1250        25 children = $625   

        10 children = $250       5 children = $125        2 children = $50   


You can invest in the future of education in our community by completing the donation and returning it with your check payable to: Lake Stevens Education Foundation, PO Box 1495, Lake Stevens, WA 98258.


For more information on the program and/or sponsoring opportunities, please contact Leslie Elsemore at or by mail at PO Box 1495, Lake Stevens, WA 98258.
