Imagination Library

Susie Billings told her fellow Kiwanians about Imagination Library.  Imagination Library is an early childhood literacy program launched by the Dollywood Foundation in 1995 thanks to the vision and generosity of singer, performer Dolly Parton.

Imagination Library is a program made possible through a partnership of the Hancock County Community Foundation (HCCF) and the Hancock County Public Library (HCPL).
The Imagination Library program will provide an age appropriate book to all qualifying children who are residents of Hancock County. Books are delivered monthly to the home, and in the name, of the enrolled child…in other words, children will receive their very own books.
The people of Hancock County will be encouraged to invest in the future of our community’s children until the endowment fund is capable of full program support.  Until then, HCCF is committed to the program’s success and will provide the financial resources needed to fill funding gaps related to immediate book expenses.
  • To jump start the endowment, HCCF will celebrate the National Week of Philanthropy by encouraging the community to board the Imagination Library Express from November 9-13.
  • During that week, each $1 donated will be matched with .50 from a pool of $100,000 thanks to a grant from Lilly Endowment.
  • Gifts will be matched during the National Week of Philanthropy from Monday, November 9, beginning at 8:00 am to Friday, November 13 until 4:00 pm.
