Raising Readers, Creating Opportunities!


Sponsors and donations are essential in helping RRITH get books into the hands of children in Polk County. Sponsorship levels are listed here for your consideration.

Each book costs $2.10. That means $25.10 provides 12 books mailed to one child each year! This helps increase literacy rates for children throughout their lives. RRITH’s goal is to serve over 36,000 eligible children in Polk County.

Raising Readers in the Heartland, a local affiliate, partners with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to provide a safe, trusted process for collecting data and distributing books to Polk County children. We are committed to increasing literacy rates for all children from birth to age five in Polk County, IA.
