Have you heard things around Madison County like, “Imagination Library”, “books for kids coming to their homes”, “Dolly Parton” and more? Here’s the scoop- Dolly Parton launched this wonderful program to foster a love of reading among preschool children and their families by providing them with the gift of a book each month directly delivered to the child’s home. Any child in the Morrisville Eaton Central School District from ages 0-5 can sign up for this great program! If you haven’t signed your child up, ask us about it today! We are also accepting donations to keep this program going for years to come! If interested, please contact us!
