Excerpt: Paige loves books, Olson said, but the family can’t afford to buy many. This summer, they signed up for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program, offered through the Superior/Douglas County United Way. Since then, they’ve receive a brand new age-appropriate book in the mail every month.

“I like the quality of the books,” said Olson, who lives in Superior.

The hardcover titles are colorful, engaging and easy to share, she said.

“The books are adorable,” said Kathi Madsen, executive director of the United Way of Superior-Douglas County. Some families can’t afford new books, she said. Others may not have the gas money to go to the public library. The Imagination Library provides them books with no strings attached.
