What is The Imagination Library of the Prescott Area?

What is ILPA?

ILPA is a local affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, serving families living in Yavapai County, Arizona.

What does the program do?

Provides books at no cost to children from the age of 0-5 by mailing a book to their home every month.

Who can participate?

Families with children between the ages of 0 and 5, residing in Yavapai County, AZ.

Why it's Important

Years of research and dozens of studies point to the same thing: reading to children from the time they are born is critical to literacy development and academic success. Research shows that access to high quality children’s literature has a tremendous impact on children’s early literacy development, which in turn impacts their overall school success in subsequent years. The books from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library encourage parent involvement and create a home library to help engage parents and children in reading together.
