On Wednesday, November 13, our guest speaker was Jean Glotzbach, the administrator of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program at the Benton County Public Library in Fowler. This fantastic reading program is open to any child from newborn to age 5, who resides in Benton County or in the Benton Community School district. Every child who is registered into the program will receive a new book every month, mailed directly to them. There is no cost to the family to sign up their child to be a part of this wonderful program. The program in Benton County has been in place since July 4, 2007. This program has reached over 530 kids in our county the past 6+ years, and currently serves 252 kids throughout the area, with plenty of room to grow.



The Fowler Rotary Club is proud to be an annual supporter of this reading program for young children. Pictured below is Fowler Rotary Club President Michele Brouillette presenting a check to Jean Glotzbach to continue that support in 2013. To find out more about this reading program for young kids newborn to age 5, and to register them as participants in the program, please contact the Benton County Public Library at (765) 884-1720. Many thanks to Jean Glotzbach for her dedication to the success of this program, and thanks to Sandy Furr for inviting Jean to be our guest speaker.
