Dolly Parton's Imagination Library expands in Lynchburg
Aspire Foundation will give free books to children in low-income homes
LYNCHBURG, Va. – Dolly Parton's Imagination Library has come to the Lynchburg area.
Organizers with Aspire Foundation launched the program in the Hill City for children living in low-income households.
Children ages zero to 5 years old will receive a free book every month.
Organizers say local sponsors helped make this possible.
"It's just $25 per child per year. So they get 12 books in that year and it's shipped directly through their home," Mary Omotoye, co-founder, Aspire Foundation
Organizers want to expand the program.
