Smart Start South Central has begun a fundraising campaign to help keep Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library alive in Pontotoc County.
As is the case with most state-supported agencies, said Trish Little, SSSC community coordinator, Smart Start South Central’s funding has taken a big hit this year, leaving very few funds to keep the Imagination Library program in operation. The program sends a free, age-appropriate book to any Pontotoc County child who registers, up to age 5. It costs $28 per year to fund each child enrolled in DPIL.
