Dolly Parton Imagination Library

The United Way of Coshocton County is a proud supported of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library (DPIL) program which began in 2008. DPIL is a free book program for any child ages 0-5 living in Coshocton County.

To date we have had 3,098 children participate in the program and currently have 1,197 children enrolled.  Coshocton County has 2270 children ages 0-5, so we are only reaching 52% of the eligible children.


Objectives of this program include: 

  • Continuation of program that started in 2008 to put free books into hands of Coshocton County children.
  • Increase kindergarten readiness
  • Increase reading skills
  • Increase academic success
  • Ultimately lead to more productive adulthood


The cost of the program fluctuates with bulk mail postage and the number of children enrolled.  Currently the cost is $26/year/child.  With 1,197 children enrolled as of this writing, our yearly costs are $31,122.
