Tuesday was Dolly Day in the Buckeye State. 

Dolly Parton got her own day in Ohio and a celebration because of her work to help kids in the state. It was all in recognition of her Imagination Library, which sends kids under 5 free books.

More than 327,000 Ohio kids get a book monthly through the Imagination Library. 

Parton was in Columbus Tuesday joining Ohio First Lady Fran DeWine, who championed the program and presented Parton with a quilt with 88 squares, one made by each county. 

Parton gifted the state a large version of her book Coat of Many Colors.
