FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Senate has voted to establish Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library book gifting program statewide.

The legislation now heads to the House for a vote.

With the goal of inspiring a love of reading, the voluntary program gifts books each month to children from infancy to 5 years old, free of charge to families, through funding that will be shared by Parton, Kentucky’s state government, and community partners.
