Dolly’s Imagination Library program continues to expand to new areas, and most recently it was announced that Senate Bill 1183 — bipartisan legislation in partnership with The Dollywood Foundation to establish the Imagination Library of California Statewide Program — has been signed by Governor Gavin Newsom, paving the way for the program to launch statewide in California mid-2023.
