By: Marianne Boerigter
If you have a newborn or a child under the age of 5 and live in the Hesperia Community Library district, check out their Imagination Library program!
In 1995, Dolly Parton launched an exciting new effort, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, to benefit the children of her home county in East Tennessee. Dolly's vision was to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and...
their families by providing them with the gift of a specially selected book each month.Dolly’s Imagination Library became so popular that in the year 2000 she announced that she would make the program available for replication to any community that was willing to partner with her to support it locally.
Through a generous gift from the Gerber Foundation, Hesperia Community Library is able to participate in this program to encourage reading and an interest in learning.When a child is registered they will receive a hardcover book mailed to them each month that is theirs to keep. Some of the titles are: Owl Moon by Jane Yolen, Roar of a Snore by Marsha Arnold and Little Pink Pup by Johanna Kerby. There is no charge to participate, but children must be residents of the library district and between 0 and 5 years old.
Stop by Hesperia Community Library for a brochure and more details on this great program! The library is located at 80 S. Division St. in Hesperia or call 231.854.5125.
