Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has found a new home in Palm Beach County. The organization, founded in 1995, mails one free book per month to children under the age of 5 who need them. Palm Beach Gardens residents Christen and Nicholas Thompson launched a local branch of Imagination Library in South Florida to help kids in the area and, to help put down roots, they will host a virtual Silent Auction December 4 to 13.
The Thompson’s foundation will also host a Facebook fundraiser ahead of the release of the new feature film The Library That Dolly Built on December 9. The movie tells the story of the Imagination Library, and Dolly Parton will perform live and answer questions in a live Q&A that is only available via our Imagination Library Facebook page.
Starting next year, the Christen and Nicholas Thompson Foundation will host an annual golf tournament fundraiser to benefit the Imagination Library.
