Dolly Parton's Imagination Library

Children, birth to five years of age, who reside here in Hancock County, can register to have one age-appropriate book mailed to their home every month, at no cost to the family.

family literacy nights

Each year, we hold fun, free literacy nights in our local schools. These events allow children to participate in literacy activities with their adults in a family-friendly environment.

parent partner videos

Parent Partner videos are a useful literacy tool to help guide parents and caregivers of young children. We want both parents and children to get the most out of their reading time as possible, while still making reading fun! Each video focuses on a variety of tips for reading with your child. It is never too early to start reading to a child.


Tell-A-Tale is a creative writing contest, where children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade can submit a short story. All entries are judged prior to a fun awards banquet to honor the writers.

community books

Community Books allows Hancock Literacy to give books in bulk to local agencies who may see at-risk children come through their doors.
