The Hopkinsville Christian County Public Library is well on its way to reaching its first year Imagination Library sign-up goal. Library Coordinator, Tana Williamson announced Thursday that they had reached fifty percent of the 2-thousand child goal.
She was joined by Librarian Jackie Saturley, who says the program is growing in Hopkinsville, Oak Grove and Fort Campbell.
Saturley adds the program costs about 30 dollars per child per year and is open to all children under the age of five.
Imagination Library Fundraising Chair, Diane Wood says the anonymous donor set the first year goal.
She says they expected the first year to cost 60-thousand, 90-thousand the second year to reach the 50 percent goal, and have 50-thousand for the third year.
Despite the finite amount of money in the bank, Williamson says they will continue to sign-up as many children as they can.
To help the Imagination Library reach all the children it can, the Hopkinsville Kiwanis Club is making a pledge of 75-hundred dollars over the next three years, with President Carter Hendricks donating the first installment.
