Grant to help get books to kids
A $500 grant will help pay to mail free books monthly to children younger than 5.
The Marion County chapter of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, working with Families and Children Together, will use the money from Goessel Community Foundation in hope of providing children stimulating literary experiences. Nearly 330 of the 570 children younger than 5 in Marion County have registered for the program, and more than 80 having graduated from it.
