The Knox County Public Library and Imagination Library will be celebrating Dolly Parton’s birthday.
Seven library locations will be hosting story time programs for children on Jan. 19 at 10:30 a.m. There will be crafts and cupcakes.
Children will be able to help make Parton an 8-foot-long birthday card.
The Knox County Imagination Library program has mailed out 2.5 million books to children in the area under the age of 5 since 2005.
The library system will be offering a library card inspired by the singer featuring the tagline “Reading gives you wings.”
