Rowan County families can now access bilingual books through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Partnering with Smart Start Rowan, the program offers English-only and bilingual English/Spanish collections for children aged birth to five. This expansion promotes equitable access to children’s literature, encouraging a love of reading among Spanish-speaking families.

The initiative, active since 2017, reaches over 4,000 children in Rowan County monthly. Families can choose between collections to receive carefully curated books that inspire early literacy skills.
