Dolly Parton Imagination Library


The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a no cost book gifting program that mails high-quality books to children from birth until they begin school.

The Virgin Islands Children’s Museum (VICM) is the USVI steward for the program. All children under the age of 5 in the territory are eligible to register for free! Participating children receive one book per month delivered to their mailing address.  

CFVI is proud to have helped launch the program in the territory through grants to VICM.
