Dolly Parton's - Imagination Library
By reading with your children on a regular basis during their preschool years, you are giving them the biggest boost toward a successful education they will ever get.  Dolly Parton's Imagination Library will help you read with your child.  The Imagination Library is an early literacy program targeting children from birth to age five.  Every child who signs up for this program is mailed an age appropriate book each month until his or her 5th birthday at no cost to the family. 

What a wonderful opportunity for the children and families of Lyon County!  Each month a new, carefully selected book is mailed directly to your child.  Just imagine the excitement, how your child will look forward to receiving their special mail package each month and will experience exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. The benefits of this program will be reflected in our community for years to come. 

Preschool children of Lyon County (birth until their 5th birthday).


  • Be a resident of Lyon County.
  • Submit an official registration form, completely filled out by a parent or guardian (form must be approved and on file with the Lyon County Board of Education). 
  • Notify the Lyon County Board of Education any time your address changes.  Books are mailed to the address listed on the official registration form.  If the child's address changes, you must change your address in order to continue receiving books.
