Every year the Chamber of Commerce continues to support the Imagination Library. The Imagination Library is a program founded by Dolly Parton that donates books to children ages 0-5 across the United States. The Chamber of Commerce is a supporter of the Imagination Library, helping fund books for the children of Smyth County. Currently, we are sponsoring 631 children, with each child costing roughly $35 to sponsor. In order for us to continue sponsoring the Imagination Library program we must raise funds. So save the date for out next fundraiser on August 6, 2022!
