Haywood County Reading Railroad gives 100,000 book

The Haywood County Reading Railroad, an affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which began sending free books to Haywood County children in 2004, has reached a fabulous milestone this month – we have delivered our 100,000th book! We are so excited as we continue to offer this life-changing program to children from birth to age five.

Reading Railroad is a free program for these children. A parent or guardian must enroll their eligible children in this valuable early literacy program. Once enrolled, children receive a book in the mail each month. Enrollment forms are available at the Health Department, DHS, area schools and preschools, and the Elma Ross Public Library. If you haven’t signed your child up already, please do so today.

Haywood County Reading Railroad is a 501(c)3 non-profit program. We depend on local support to fund and maintain this program. Please consider making a monetary gift to Haywood County Reading Railroad. A donation of $12 provides books to a child for an entire year. A donation of $60 provides books to a child for 5 years. Your donation is tax-deductible, and because Haywood County Reading Railroad is administered by an all-volunteer board, every dollar you give goes toward book purchases. Mail your donation in any amount to Haywood County Reading Railroad, P. O. Box 25, Brownsville, TN 38012. Your gift will help the children of Haywood County succeed in school and in life. Thank you for your support.
