Dolly Parton's Imagination Library (DPIL) mails one free book, per month to kids under the age of five. Right now, 28% of Elementary school students in Montana are falling behind their peers in reading. While children that are read to at least 3 times a week are almost twice as likely to score in the top 25% in reading, according to the US Department of Education. Greater Gallatin United Way has sent over 40,000 free books to kids in Gallatin County since 2019. And we are ready to do the same for Park County kids
