LUDLOW, Vt. – The Ludlow Rotary is partnering with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which sends a monthly shipment of books to local children from birth to age five.
The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a 60-volume set of books beginning with the children’s classic, “The Little Engine That Could”. Each month a new, carefully selected book is mailed directly to the child.
Those eligible to receive these free books are children age birth to five years old who are residents of Ludlow, Mt. Holly, Cavendish, Proctorsville or Reading. This makes a great gift for children, grandchildren or another special child in your life. Websites www.DollyPartonImaginationLibrary.com and www.ludlowrotary.com provide additional information.
Research shows that more than 85% of the lucky children that receive the free Dolly Parton Imagination Library books read with their family members every single day. All of these children are better prepared when starting their formal education. The educational boost they receive doesn’t just last through kindergarten but stays with them throughout their academic career.
The registration cards for the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library are available from any Ludlow Rotarian and from Benson’s Chevrolet, Ludlow Insurance, Ludlow Library and People’s United Bank. The books begin to arrive eight to ten weeks after the child’s registration card has been received.
Ludlow rotary has already helped over 125 area children from this program. As participation in the Imagination Library increases, the Ludlow Rotary welcomes outside financial contributions from all members of the community. The cost to the Ludlow Rotary is about $25 per child per year.
