    A Letter From Dolly

    Dear friend,

    Thank you for your interest in my Imagination Library.

    This program is one of the most important ways I know to improve the educational opportunities for children in your community.

    When I was growing up in the hills of East Tennessee, I knew my dreams would come true. I know there are children in your community with their own dreams. They dream of becoming a doctor or an inventor or a minister. Who knows, maybe there is a little girl whose dream is to be a writer and singer.

    The seeds of these dreams are often found in books and the seeds you help plant in your community can grow across the world.

    I hope you'll agree to become a champion of the Imagination Library in your community. You will be amazed at the impact this simple gift can have on the lives of children and their families. We have seen it work in our backyard and I'm certain it can do the same in your community too!

    I appreciate your interest in my Imagination Library and thank you for all you continue to do for children.
