Happy Birthday Dolly Celebration!

Friday, January 19, 2018

Imagination Library and Knox County Library

Seven participating library locations will host free storytime programs with crafts and cupcakes, and children of all ages can help make Dolly Parton’s 8-foot-long birthday card. The Knox County Imagination Library program will celebrate its own milestone as well: since 2005, the program has mailed out 2.5 million books to Knox County children under the age of five.

To honor East Tennessee’s favorite “Book Lady”, the Library is encouraging all children to sign up for their own library card inspired by Dolly’s love of butterflies. Children of all ages, even infants, qualify for a children's card, which has some restrictions. Children must be present to apply and parents must provide identification and address verification in order to receive the special children's card. All new cards are free and will be available by January 19.
