To help promote reading among youth, Ashe County implemented last year the Dolly Parton Imagination Library with free books for children.
To help promote and support the program, local artist Stephen Shoemaker has created a special print, “Imagination Library,” sponsored by Bob Washburn and AF Bank.
“Bob Washburn said he wanted to do something special for the Imagination Library, so he said create something,” Shoemaker said. This delightful print is the result.
