QuickStart Tennis of Central Virginia, Inc. (QCV) reported a Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL) program is now operational in Patrick County. This most recent DPIL program resulted from a combination of our promotion efforts for this wonderful book-gifting program and collaborative efforts of the Patrick Chamber of Commerce, One Family Productions, the Stuart Rotary Club and S.T.E.P., led by Rebecca Adcock, executive director of the chamber.
“We are excited to bring this nationally acclaimed program to Patrick County to assist our future generations with literacy skills that help them have a bright future. Reading is fundamental and this program ensures kids from all backgrounds have equal access to books,” Adcock said.
QCV Founder Lynda Harrill added, “This is the third new DPIL program that has launched recently. In Patrick, Rebecca and Sarah Wray, President of One Family Productions, jumped on this immediately. They found a 501(c)(3) nonprofit partner when S.T.E.P (Solutions that Empower People), the local community action program, stepped up to be the fiscal sponsor for the DPIL steering committee. It takes the support of an entire community to have a strong DPIL program. They certainly have that in Patrick.”
