The Library That Dolly Built

April 2, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Smart Start Partnership for Children is hosting a screening of the newly released documentary, The Library That Dolly Built, on April 2 at 7pm at Epic Theaters located at 200 Thompson St. in Hendersonville. Tickets are on sale now at www.epictheaters.com or by calling 828-693-1146. The Library That Dolly Built is a feature-length documentary, covering the history, impact and future of Dolly Parton’s world-wide book gifting program.​ It features the music of Dolly Parton and is narrated by actress and author Danica McKellar. Produced by Land Grant Films, The Library That Dolly Built is directed by journalism professor Nick Geidner, edited by video instructor Clinton Elmore, and crewed by 15 University of Tennessee students. Half of the proceeds from ticket sales will support early literacy in Henderson County through Smart Start’s Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program. The Imagination Library mails a new, age-appropriate book monthly to children from birth (or whenever they register) until their fifth birthday, at no cost to families. Smart Start is currently providing a book each month for over 3,000 local children and all proceeds from the book sale will support more Henderson County children to receive books. For more information about Smart Start Partnership for Children or to register a young child to receive books through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, call Smart Start Partnership for Children at 828-693-1580, visit www.smartstartpfc.org, or find Smart Start Partnership for Children on Facebook or Instagram.
