In 2019, Goodyear PebbleCreek Rotary became an official affiliate of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in an effort to promote literacy in the West Valley.

“The DPIL program is such a powerful way to engage children in early literacy and language development. Research has found that early indicators of success in reading are dependent on the number of books in the home, opportunities to be read to and engage with books,” Avondale Elementary School Superintendent and Rotary member, Dr. Betsy Hargrove said. “The DPIL program provides a hand-selected, age-appropriate, high-quality book each month to our children up to the age of 5, setting them up for success! We are thrilled to be included in this opportunity!”
Kindergarten readiness and enhancing literacy in the home is the primary goal of this program.  It’s been proven that reading regularly to children during their preschool years will give them a big boost toward a successful education.
