The Rotary Clubs of Roscommon & Houghton Lake recently donated $6,000 to the Roscommon County Literacy Council in support of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. The Rotary Club of Roscommon provided $2,000, The Rotary Club of Houghton Lake provided $1,000, and Rotary District 6290 matched the $3,000 for a $6,000 total donation. This is the 8th year of local support for the program which allows children to receive a book every month until age 5. The books are chosen by a team of educators. 512 Roscommon County children are currently in the program (which is only about 1/2 of eligible children). There is no need requirement, so anyone can participate. The program currently requires $13,000/tear to operate with the literacy council providing $25 per child and the Dolly Parton foundation covering the rest of the cost.
