Registration is now available in Marengo County for children interested in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. A kickoff event for the initiative will take place Thursday, Aug. 6 from 10:30 a.m until noon at the Marengo County Library. Representatives from the initiative will also be reading a book to the reading groups in attendance.
Following the kickoff at MPL, the group will set up at the Demopolis Public Library from 1:30 p.m. until 3 p.m.
“We are really excited to officially kick off Dolly Parton’s program in Marengo County,” Kathryn Pearson of the United Way of West Alabama said. “Reading to children not only strengthens their reading, writing and comprehension abilities, it also enhances their imagination and creativity.”
