The annual drive for the Houston Imagination Library is under way. This marks the 10th anniversary with 197 children graduating from the program over the years. There are 110 children ages one month to five years currently enrolled who receive a free book monthly. Thirty-three graduated last year.
Houston Imagination Library —in cooperation with Dolly Parton’s foundation — raises funds to pay for the program locally.
A tax-deductible donation of $25 sponsors one child annually. To contribute, drop a check to P.O. Box 222, Houston, Mo., 65483.
Officers of the local group are: Wilda McNiell, chair; Sheena Postlewait, secretary; Sally Smith, treasurer; Shannon Nunnery, data clerk; Tina Sutton and Sheila Campbell, correspondence; and Karen Parker and Peggy Holder, members.
