Originated by Wayne State University Library System employees in October 2019, Team Dolly's mission was to make Dolly Parton's Imagination Library available to WSU and the surrounding Detroit community. As of July 1st, 2020, the Wayne State University Library System (WSULS) and Team Dolly are the official local affiliate for the Imagination Library, with the program launching in zip codes 48201 and 48202.
Created by Dolly Parton in 1995, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library (DPIL) is a program that will mail one free book every month to each registered child from birth to age five. Chapter organizations of the Imagination Library now exist worldwide. In order for DPIL to exist in an area, a local affiliate is needed to run and manage each program chapter--Team Dolly was born out of this necessity! More details can be found by visiting the Imagination Library's homepage.
