Dolly Parton created her Imagination Library in 1995 to help inspire children’s love of reading, and now the history of the organization is going to be the subject of a new livestream. “The Library That Dolly Built” will stream for one night only on Facebook, December 9th at 7 pm.

“I am so excited that we can finally tell the whole story of the Imagination Library,” Dolly shared. “It is certainly not just about me. Our story is the story of children, of families and communities who all share the dream to inspire kids to love to read and to love to learn.”

She added, “My hope is this documentary will encourage more towns, more states, and even more countries to jump on board. One thing is for sure, I think this is the best investment I have ever made!” 

You can watch the live stream on Facebook, here, or on
