Dolly Parton will appear on “CBS This Morning” on Monday, Aug. 17 to talk about the importance of education and her Imagination Library.

As part of CBS’s new School Matters series, Dolly Parton will be on “CBS This Morning” on Monday, Aug. 17, 2020, during the 8 AM (EST) hour. Dolly will talk about her Imagination Library and how the program’s efforts contribute to education and learning.


Each month Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library gifts a free, high-quality book to registered children. Once a year, a specially selected panel of early childhood literacy experts reviews hundreds of potential titles for inclusion in the Imagination Library. This panel takes great care in choosing books that meet the different needs of children as they progress from birth to age five. To date, the Imagination Library has gifted over 140 million free books to children around the world.

Recent studies suggest participation in the Imagination Library is positively and significantly associated with higher measures of early language and math development.
