Knowing that healthy, engaged and energetic young people with a thirst for learning are crucial to the quality of life of our families today and a productive workforce tomorrow, the Henderson Education Foundation supports youth services and educational excellence throughout the county.

Imagination Library

Founded in 1996 by music legend Dolly Parton, Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free books to children from birth to age five in participating communities within the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Imagination Library is a demonstrated success story in improving early childhood literacy, a key determiner of later academic achievement.

In Henderson County, the chamber is the primary supporter of the local Imagination Library program, which mails FREE age-appropriate books each month to nearly 900 local children ages newborn through five regardless of their families’ means. Almost 1,300 children have already graduated from the Henderson County Imagination Library program, which was the first in Kentucky.
