*culture is not optional is partnering with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to send age-appropriate books to all registered children ages 0 to 5 in the City of Three Rivers. The process to enroll your child is simple: click on the button below and fill out the form on the Imagination Library web site! Your child will begin receiving books every month in about 6 to 8 weeks after enrollment.

Underlying all of our work with *cino is the belief that a well-curated imagination can be a transformative force for making our city and our world a place where all can flourish. Part of how we grow our imaginations is experiencing new things and part of what helps us do that is reading. From an early age, we can begin to shape our imaginations toward curiosity, empathy, and care for our neighbors. Through the Imagination Library, we can grow your child’s library and imagination!
