Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is now in Flagler County, Florida!
September 1st, 2010, the Early Learning Coalition of Flagler & Volusia will partner with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to begin this free program. The goal is to provide free books to children in Flagler County from birth to five years of age. This is a collaborative effort between many community champions. As research shows, there is a strong correlation between the number of books in the home and children's literacy skills and academic success.
The Children's Department at the Flagler County Public Library is holding a poster contest to promote awareness of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in Flagler County. Families may participate by submitting a 22" x 28" poster depicting the topic of reading to young children. Any art medium may be used. Winners will be announced on August 24, 2010. (Sponsored by the Friends of the Library)
