We would like to Acknowledge and thank Baker Newby Law Firm for supporting the Dolly Parton Imagination Library of the Fraser Valley! Please join us at Brown's social house April 10th for appetizers and drinks to celebrate and launch our year. Baker Newby has pledged to match any donations made up to $20.000! We have already signed up, over 152 children to our program and have many more on our waiting list.
It is only $215 to sponsor a child from birth to age 5. They receive a book a month from birth to age 5. Encouraging bonding with parents and a life long love of reading as well as getting a head start in school.
