To the Editor,
“We would like to Thank You here and there, we would like to Thank You anywhere, we would like to Thank You in a boat, we would like to Thank You with a goat, in the park or at the zoo, it was awfully nice of you!” Dr. Seuss wrote this and we agree! The Lenawee Community Foundation would like to thank all of our local libraries for hosting our life size cutout of Dolly Parton! It is exciting for us to share Dolly and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library with our community. We had so much fun posting the pictures of Dolly and library staff to our Imagination Library Facebook page, and what great sports they are!
Although we originally had Dolly’s cut out in the libraries for National Reading Awareness Month, she is still making appearances! Because of our wonderful local libraries, we get to add a little more fun to reading. You help us show that every day is important to read to your children, and we know that you share our belief that children who read succeed!
The Lenawee Community Foundation partners with the Dollywood Foundation to deliver an age-appropriate book each month to children ages birth to five, who are registered. The Dollywood Foundation discounts the cost and mails the books, while the Lenawee Community Foundation maintains the database and through generous donors covers the cost of approximately $2.50 per book.
Currently, 1,700 children receive Imagination Library books each month. The Lenawee Imagination Library is a perfect program to utilize and support!
