Secondly, Mr. Hines shared information on Dolly Parton's Imagination Library,which helps boost your children’s education by providing free children’s books. By reading regularly with your children during their preschool years, you can give them the biggest boost toward a successful education.
Every child will receive books of their own, at no cost, thanks to United Way of Cumberland County and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child’s name directly to your home. They can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library each month.
