The spearhead behind this project is Hays resident, Lori Hertel – in memory of her daughter Ana.

How long does it take before my child receives a book?  The books are ordered on the 4th of each month for delivery the last week of the following month.  For example if you registered August 3rd, you will receive your first book the last week of September.  However, if you were enrolled after August 4th, you would roll over to the next delivery date for deliver the last week of October.



The Ellis County Dolly Parton Imagination Library is generously funded by the Dane G. Hansen Community Foundation.
