The partnership will provide a monetary donation for every hotel room reserved in the month ofDecember, librarians said. Heather Shoemake, Comfort Suites of Hopkinsville Assistant General Manager and Director of Sales said, “Comfort Suites of Hopkinsville is Happy to partner up with the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library in showing our support for Imagination Library. We look forward to educating our guests on this program.”

In turn, the Imagination Library will provide a reading area in the Comfort Suites lobby for all guests to enjoy. Traveling families are encouraged to utilize this area and freely take books to and from their rooms throughout their stay. Sarah Hardison, Imagination Library Coordinator, said, “By partnering with the Imagination Library, Comfort Suites is advocating for early literacy in our community. They are recognizing a need and taking action. We are incredibly grateful for their willingness to support our future leaders through the gift of reading.”

The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a free program to any child, birth-5 years old. Enrollment in the program provides an age appropriate book that is delivered to the child’s home each month. The concept was inspired by Parton’s own father who never learned to read.

“He was the smartest man I have ever known but I know in my heart his inability to read probably kept him from fulfilling all of his dreams,” said Parton. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library was designed to inspire children to learn to read and empower them as they prepare for kindergarten.

The HCCPL Imagination Library has distributed over 240,000 books in Christian County. Visit http://hccpl.org/services/gallery/imagination-library to register online or contact Sarah Hardison at 270-887-4242 x110.
