Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library hired Megan Marsh as the HCCPL Dolly Parton Imagination Library coordinator.

Her first day will be Thursday.

Megan is a graduate of Hopkinsville Community College. She has previous experience in event planning and fundraising and has recently been involved with United Way of the Pennyrile as a volunteer for the Foster Care and Youth Service Advisory Board.

Megan shared, “I am unbelievably honored to be able to make the words of Dolly Parton come to life: ‘The seeds of dreams are often found in books, and the seeds you help plant in your community can grow across the world.’ ”

The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is a free book program for any child, birth to 5 years old, that lives in Christian County. Enrollment in the program provides an age-appropriate book that is delivered to the child’s home each month. The Christian County Imagination Library is entering its eighth year. The program averages approximately 3,400 children enrolled each month throughout the county. Funding for the program is provided through local government support, the United Way of the Pennyrile, and private donations.

DeeAnna Sova, Executive Director, said, “We are excited that Megan chose to join us as the Imagination Library Coordinator.

She comes to us with a fundraising background, and I know she will continue the mission to get books into the hands of the children of Christian County.”
