It's a big honor & one I'm proud to share with the many special partners & local affiliates who have helped make this day possible. https://t.co/6q98ur6O8t— Dolly Parton (@DollyParton) February 21, 2018
Okay, maybe she isn't running for office, but she is definitely making an impact on children living in the United States.
When Dolly Parton started The Imagination Library, it was to help the children who lived in Sevier, which is her home county. She had created it with her father in mind, who never learned to read, but was the "smartest man she'd ever known."
Her daddy would be so proud to see, his little "Dolly" on Capitol Hill, presenting the 100 millionth book donation from Imagination Library to the Library of Congress’s collection on February 27th. According to the Tennessean, Dolly said, “Before he passed away, my Daddy told me the Imagination Library was probably the most important thing I had ever done.”
Local students will be treated to a story by Dolly Parton at the Library of Congress’s Thomas Jefferson Building in Washington, D.C.
