The “Read With Me Railway” is the local affiliate of

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

in Washington and Greene Counties in Pennsylvania.


Our Mission is to instill a love and appreciation of reading

in every child, starting at birth.


We will strive to make quality literature available to all children

from birth through their fifth birthday.

In doing so, we aim to promote early childhood literacy

and increased proficiency upon entry into the

local educational system.

The books will be given to the children absolutely free.

The only obligation of the child’s family is

to spend time reading together.
