Ellinwood Community Library Foundation Donation

United Way of Central Kansas was presented with a donation of $2,500 from the Ellinwood Community Library Foundation to support the continuation of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Ellinwood.  This funding will support the continuation of this program for nearly 2 years.  Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library provides books, monthly, to children age 0-5, for no cost.  This program provides books to more than 70 Ellinwood children each month.  Without the donation from the Ellinwood Community Library Foundation, UWCK would not be able to sustain this program.  We are grateful to numerous Ellinwood residents for helping UWCK to spread the word about DPIL, especially Jacquelyn Dewey who has helped to raise money for this program throughout Barton County, and also Nancy Baird, 2018 UWCK Co-Chair and advocate of DPIL.  Board Member Becca Maxwell is an integral part of the success of UWCK in Ellinwood and was a part of spearheading the inception of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Ellinwood in 2012.
