Moore County parents and guardians of children ages birth to five are now eligible to register for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Once a registration is entered and processed, each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed to the home in the child's name. The goal is to make sure every family with young children in the community has books to read and enjoy at home. This program is provided at no cost to parents through funding provided by the North Carolina General Assembly.
Southern Pines Public Library, a
community partner in Growing Moore Readers, is pleased to support Partners
for Children & Families, Moore County’s local Smart Start affiliated
agency, which is leading this effort locally. Library computers are available for parents to register
their children, and Library staff are promoting and assisting with the sign up
for the program. Growing Moore Readers unites families and community partners in programs like the Imagination
Library, to make every moment a brain building moment for children in our
community. The collaborative works to ensure all children in Moore County
achieve the most important predictor of long term success—grade-level reading
by the end of third grade.
