Haywood Community College faculty and staff members collected a total of $2,924.00 for United Way to be used for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The funds were raised through the college’s annual campaign. This year’s campaign was led by instructors Susan Roberts and Jodi Wijewickrama. Through the Imagination Library, children ages newborn up to five years who are enrolled in the program receive one free book a month. As educators, this program is especially important to provide an early foundation for a love of reading in our young children. In 2009, 820 children were enrolled in this program in Haywood County.
