Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation

The mission of the Governor's Books from Birth Foundation is to build a foundation for reading and learning through books for Tennessee's children. Our program sustains and strengthens Dolly Parton's Imagination Library in all 95 Tennessee counties, ensuring that new, age-appropriate books are mailed once a month to Tennessee's preschool children, at no cost to families and regardless of income.
