July 8, 2021
1:00pm - 2:00pm


Children's Auditorium




Join United Way, The Community Foundation of Macon County, and Decatur Public Library for the launch of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Macon County!

There will be a brief introduction to the program, then Mayor Julie Moore Wolfe will be on hand to read the classic story The Little Engine That Could. Following the reading, families will be able to register their eligible children to receive free books through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program, which is open to children newborn through 4 years old.

All registrants will get a copy of The Little Engine That Could to take home (one per family).

Light refreshments will be served.

Due to social distancing concerns, registration is required and is limited to 20 families. Please register one child from your family, and let us know how many others (children and adults) will be attending with your family.

Please note that adults who are not vaccinated against COVID and children 2 to 11 years old are required to wear masks in the building.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL) mails a high-quality, age-appropriate book to registered children from birth until their 5th birthday. A book is delivered – addressed to the child – directly to the family’s door once per month at no cost to the child’s family.

You do not need to attend this event to register for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Macon County. Registration will be available shortly after the launch event at
