Dolly Parton turned 74 years old Sunday. And United Way of McPherson County celebrated her birthday with the announcement that enrollment in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has reached more than 500 children in the first three months of the program.
“I am so excited to announce that 519 children have now been registered to receive books through United Way of McPherson County and the Imagination Library,” Chair of United Way’s Community Impact Committee Lara Vanderhoof said. “Reading is a gift. Reading opens up the imagination, creativity, learning, communication, and bonding between the young child and reader. No child is too young to be read to. My hope and dream through the Imagination Library is that each child who receives these books
develops a life-long enjoyment for reading. I want to thank our donors for helping put books in our youngest reader’s hands.”
