In a video posted on Dolly Parton's Imagination Library Facebook page, the artist and humanitarian introduced herself as "The Book Lady", before announcing her new program "Goodnight With Dolly" in which Parton would read books from her library.

"This is something I have been wanting to do for quite a while, but the timing never felt quite right", said Dolly. It is an honour for me to share the incredible talent of these authors and illustrators. "I think that when this passes we're all gonna be better people", she continues, urging fans to "just keep the faith" and not be afraid.

Dolly Parton, American singer-songwriter known for her country hits, will be reading bedtime stories starting Thursday, April 2.


John seized the opportunity to mention how AIDS was "another infectious disease that was ignored" as he warned that the same mistakes should not be made.

Here's the teaser for you - and be sure to tune into the first Dolly Parton bedtime stories series which premieres for us here at midnight on April 3. Watty Piper's classic tale of a determined little engine has been an inspiration to generations.

Additionally, the documentary about her Imagination Library The Library That Dolly Built will open nationally the week of September 21st to commemorate the Library's 25th anniversary.


Parton's Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until they begin school, no matter their family's income.

It will be available via Imagination Library, Dolly Parton, World Choice Investments, and Dollywood channels.

With many parents scrambling to provide their children with a routine and sense of security as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, Dolly Parton is here to help!


"I think I can speak for all this friends and family and fans when I say, I will always love you". "So many of our Imagination Library affiliates had organized events around the nationwide screenings, however, things do have a way of working out so the documentary will still have its day".
