We are so excited to share that along with The Dollywood Foundation of Canada, we are presenting a free
one-night-only live streaming world premiere event for The Library That Dolly Built, a behind-the-scenes look at Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library!!!
Originally scheduled as a nationwide live event on more than 300 screens this spring, the world premiere for The Library That Dolly Built has been reimagined as a free live stream screening of the film, exclusively on Facebook, available nationally on Wednesday, December 9th at 7pm EST. The screening will be followed by a conversation with, and live acoustic performance, by Dolly Parton. Viewers can tune into the live screening and conversation.
Parton created the Imagination Library to inspire a love for books and reading amongst the nation’s preschool children. Since its inception in 1995, the Imagination Library has grown into a
global endeavour and recently hit a new milestone, gifting its 150 millionth book. The Imagination Library is currently gifting books to 1.7 million children around the world each month.
To make this night even more exciting and to enhance your viewing, we have created a “Hello Dolly Snack Pack” to be delivered directly to your home for you to enjoy!
Included in each snack pack is:
–  Original Kettlecorn and Gourmet popcorn
