LYNCHBURG, Va. - Dolly Parton's Imagination Library has come to the Lynchburg area. 

Organizers with Aspire Foundation launched the program in the Hill City for children living in low-income households. 

Children ages zero to 5 years old will receive a free book every month. 

Organizers say local sponsors helped make this possible. 

"It's just $25 per child per year. So they get 12 books in that year and it's shipped directly through their home," Mary Omotoye, co-founder, Aspire Foundation

Organizers want to expand the program.
