Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library

The library is working with the United Ways in Troy, Piqua and Tipp City and the Friends of the Library group to provide the books for children from birth through age five. The project is being funded in part by money donated to the library by Ada Pressman, a former Troy resident who worked as a mechanical engineer in the 1970s and specialized in developing emergency safety systems for fossil-fired and nuclear power plants

The project was announced Thursday by Rachelle Miller, library director. The Imagination Library was created to stimulate a child’s imagination and encourage reading within the family at an early age. Anyone interested in more information, or in signing their child up should call Nancy Hargrove at (937) 339-0502, ext. 121.

The program previously was available for children in Tipp City, Bethel Twp. and Newton Twp. thanks to local funding. Those children will be enrolled in the county project. NANCY BOWMAN, CONTRIBUTING WRITER
