By reading regularly to your children during preschool years, you are giving them a big boost toward a successful education.

With the help of local community partners in Yolo County, your local United Way is helping children in Yolo County build home libraries at no cost through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Each month, a new book is mailed directly to your child’s home every month for a year until their 5th birthday. 

The Imagination Library program in Yolo County is currently full. To be on our waitlist, email the following information to Lori Ross at
