Let your town be the next one
Reading at an early age lays a framework for imagination and inspiration, creativity and comprehension. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is helping kids from ages one to five do just that by providing free books on a monthly basis because after all, it’s hard to engender a love of reading without having something to read.
Every month, for five years, children receive an age appropriate book in the mail. The content of the books the children receive changes with every year they get older. The Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation has given to the program for Georgetown County tots, and there are small programs of it in other areas of the Lowcountry. In Charleston County, volunteers are aiming to start it in focus areas of Hollywood, Adams Run, and Meggett. Help support the youth of tomorrow.
