Small children living in Christian County will soon be receiving a book at their home each month, thanks to an anonymous donor.
Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library Board Treasurer Diane Wood says the donor gave 200-thousand dollars for Christian County to participate in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program.
Ms. Wood says the 7-thousand children in the county between the ages of zero and five will receive books monthly, once the program gets started.
There is a possibility the donor might continue the program when the money runs out, or it’s possible the community could be asked for help. Trigg and Muhlenberg Counties already participate in the program.
