A message from Dolly Parton to Tamworth

TAMWORTH recently signed up its 1000th baby to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library and Dolly has sent this message to the parents, the children and the organisations behind this remarkable project that encourages families to participate in reading and learning.

"Congratulations to Tamworth for achieving the tremendous milestone of 1,000 children enrolled in my Imagination Library program! I know it takes a lot of people to make this possible, but I want to especially thank Mayor Col Murray, the Tamworth Regional Council and United Way Australia for helping this dream come true. I am grateful that so many children will continue to receive this gift each month, but we have much left to do. So keep up the great work, Tamworth!

Love, Dolly"
