Council expands free book program to Cullowhee

Written by 

After successful programs in Cashiers, Glenville and Sapphire, the Literacy Council of Cashier expanded its Dolly Parton Imagination Library to Cullowhee.

Children, from birth to age 5, can register to have a free age appropriate book mailed to them each month. Registration forms can be found at the Cashiers library, Southwest Child Development Center, the health department, and various doctor offices, preschools, daycares, churches and post offices in the Cullowhee area.

Data shows that children who are read to at home and are familiar with books before entering kindergarten are more successful in school.

The Literacy Council pays $30 per child each year for the books. Tax-deductible donations are appreciated and can be sent to the Literacy Council of Cashiers, P.O. Box 791 in Cashiers.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
