Dolly Parton reading books with children for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Goondiwindi Regional Council, Care Goondiwindi and United Way Australia have united to bring Dolly Parton's Imagination Library early literacy intervention to children in the Goondiwindi Local Government Area.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library puts books into the hands and hearts of children across the world - and it's now right here in the Goondiwindi Region! Any child born from 1 March 2022 currently residing in the Goondiwindi Local Government Area is eligible to join.

In partnership with our local Council libraries in Goondiwindi, Inglewood and Texas, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library will provide a hand-selected, age-appropriate, high-quality book each month to registered children (from birth to age five).

The Imagination Library means that all Goondiwindi Region children can have a great selection of books at home to support the great selection on offer in our libraries and support their reading at home.
