The Middletown Community Foundation chose to bring Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to the city of Middletown in 2008 as a response to local entering kindergarteners performing very poorly on literacy tests, with their average score being among the lowest in the state of Ohio. The Community Foundation stepped forward as the program's administrator and primary funder in partnership with the community's three private foundations and its largest service clubs, Rotary and Kiwanis. In the first year, entering kindergarteners who received Imagination Library books scored on average 4 percent higher for their entering literacy score than those who did not participate, and in the second year, they scored on average 11 percent higher than those who did not receive books.
In April 2011, in partnership with the United Way of Greater Cincinnati-Middletown Area's women's initiative Women Living United, the surrounding school districts of Madison, Monroe, and Edgewood were added, doubling the number of eligible children for the Middletown area program. By September Middletown advanced to the largest enrollment total of the 23 affiliates located throughout Ohio, and in November its 30,000th book was delivered.
