    Dolly Parton is, perhaps, the one celebrity left we can believe in (please, please don’t tell me if she supports Biden). At the very least, she’s the only person who could pull off creating a herself-themed amusement park and still, somehow, remain relatable. Of the many gifts Dolly has given the world, perhaps the greatest is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a worldwide book-gifting program that mails one free book every month to kids from birth to age five in participating communities.

    If your freezer-burned heart is in need of a little warming this afternoon, do yourself a favor and watch the trailer for The Library That Dolly Built, a documentary about the program which will be released in limited theaters for one night only on April 2.
