Bringing Books to Northern Michigan's Babies
Congratulations to tiny Mallory Fox and her parents Tyler and Miranda Fox of Cadillac. Baby Mallory is the first official recipient of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library’s Books from Birth program that launched earlier this month at Munson Medical Center. Thanks to this new initiative, Mallory will receive a book by mail each month until her fifth birthday.
“This is a great collaboration between Munson Medical Center, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Grand Traverse Region, and the Traverse Bay Sunrise Rotary’s Born to Read program to create this Books from Birth campaign,” said Nickie Matters, R.N., nursing director for Women’s and Children’s Services at Munson Medical Center. “We’re excited to be part of promoting literacy and the love of books for these little ones.”
Children in the five-county area served by Munson Medical Center – including Grand Traverse, Antrim, Benzie, Kalkaska, and Leelanau counties – are eligible for enrollment in the program.
