The milestone was a copy of Parton’s newest children’s picture book, Coat of Many Colors, titled after her 1971 single of the same name. It was given to the Library of Congress in Washington, where Parton has has a partnership to livestream story readings. Parton established Imagination Library in honor of her illiterate father in 1995. The program donates books to families once a month, and will do so from a child’s birth to age 5.
