Dolly Parton launches Liverpool Imagination Library before concert
Dolly Parton has shown her charitable side by launching the Liverpool Imagination Library yesterday (September 5th).
The Liverpool Echo reports that the country and western legend opened the establishment before people with Dolly Parton tickets saw her perform at the Echo Arena.
Parton's organisation, which now has a new centre in Everton, sends one book a month to children until they are five years old.
The US singer is quoted as saying: "We will be working nine to five, and beyond, to make sure we do all we can to inspire as many kids as possible to love books and to love reading."
This week, Parton's 41st studio album Better Day reached number four in the UK album charts, which is the singer's highest debut.
Music fans that have already been to a Dolly Parton concert may want to get their hands on the record, which includes tracks Better Get To Livin' and Together You and I.
