Dolly Parton's Imagination Library
UWNEGA has teamed up with Dolly Parton’s Imagination library (DPIL) to provide children under the age of 5 living in Clarke and Oconee Counties with a brand new, age-appropriate book each month by mail. This program fosters a love for reading in preschool children and increases family engagement.
At this time, registration is closed in Clarke County. If you would like to be on the Clarke County wait list, please mail the completed enrollment form to 1 Huntington Road, Ste. 805, Athens, GA 30606.
You can enroll a child in Clarke County by self-funding and paying in full at the rate of $2.50 per book per month until the child reaches the age of five. You can make the check payable to United Way of Northeast Georgia, enter “Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library” on the memo line, and mail the completed enrollment form to 1 Huntington Road, Ste. 805, Athens, GA 30606.
