Davis Medical Center's Auxiliary Kicks Off Imagination Library

ELKINS -

Davis Medical Center's Auxiliary is providing children's books to new families.

The free program is a partnership with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library and the West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts.

Children born after January 1, 2014 from Randolph and Tucker counties will receive an age appropriate book each month until their fifth birthday.

"It's a bonding for them as a family, but it also brings our community together. Because our community we're reaching out to the community, and they find out what we're doing, and they'll come on board with us, and it just brings the community together," said Sharon Chenoweth, auxiliary president.

The program has been available in the state since 2007.

It's in 22 counties right now with the goal of expanding to all 55 counties.
