‘Ohana Readers recently selected the Molokai Public Library to host the Imagination Library Pilot Project. Children ages birth to four who reside on Molokai may register to receive free, high quality, age-appropriate books every month from Dolly Parton’s Dollywood Foundation. Interested parents and caregivers may register their children beginning on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Molokai’s Ohana Fun Fair at Kualapuu School and later at the Molokai Public Library in Kaunakakai.
‘Ohana Readers is designated as an Affiliate of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. It is through the ‘Ohana Readers collaborative partnership with the Dollywood Foundation, the Office of the Governor, the State Department of Human Services, the Hawaii State Public Library System, State Representative Lynn DeCoite, Friends of the Library of Hawaii and nonprofit partners, that the Imagination Library is available to Molokai children, ages birth through four. Expansion to other islands will be dependent on the success of this pilot project and availability of funding.
