Partners in Literacy. Read Together, Lead Together. Tangipahoa Parish School System.

TPSS is on a mission to increase the literacy skills of our children!

Tangipahoa Parish School System aims to find creative, innovative, and encouraging ways to provide more literacy exposure to our elementary age children. We are committed to helping our local businesses discover the best ways that they can make the largest impacts on nourishing the early literacy development of the children in our community.



Make a positive, lasting impact in your community.

Tangipahoa Parish School System is calling on all Tangi businesses to join our mission of having every child in our parish read on level by the third grade. Currently, only 46.1% of the students in our parish are considered on-level for literacy. Each day, TPSS strives to increase that number.

As a Partner in Literacy, you have the opportunity to provide resources, support, and encouragement to the students in our parish, making a difference in their lives. 

If you are a business owner in Tangipahoa Parish and are interested in becoming a Partner in Literacy, fill out the form below and a team member will contact you soon.

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library


We need your help to fund the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Southeast Louisiana.

The Imagination Library is dedicated to inspiring a love of reading by gifting books each month to children from birth to age five, free of charge, through funding shared by local community partners in Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, and Washington parishes.

Through United Way, we are able to give back to create a better, stronger community with opportunity for all.


Make a Contribution

Please make sure to select Tangipahoa Parish as the receiving organization. Thank you for your Literacy Partnership!

“I’m so excited to share that Louisiana is kicking off their statewide expansion, and I want to personally thank the Governor and First Lady or leading the way of bringing Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to Louisiana,” says Dolly.

Inspired by her father’s inability to read or write, Dolly started her Imagination Library in 1995 for the children within her home county. Today, her program spans five countries and gifts over 2.5 million free books each month to children, regardless of the family’s income.

Family Literacy Resources


The Louisiana Department of Education has released a series of activities that families can do at home to build literacy skills. These one-page resources are organized by age groups and offer ideas for customized, fun, simple literacy activities.
