Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library makes its way to Middle Georgia

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program helps millions of children across the world.

United Way of Central Georgia partnered with the Bibb County School District and Literacy for Learning, Living, and Leading Georgia to bring the program to Macon.

George McCanless, CEO of United Way Central Georgia, says they’ll be able to help 100 families with their current funding. However, the need is probably in the thousands.

“The way to really get our grade-level reading numbers up and into the 90 plus percentile is to have the children better prepared when they start school,” said McCanless.

United Way of Central Georgia hopes the program will positively impact the community for years to come.
