Currently Enrolling Children in Dolly Parton Imagination Library.

We are enrolling families through the Buncombe County Literacy Council to get FREE books from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library (DPIL).  The DPIL sends one FREE book a month to families with children infant to five years old, a library of 60 books.

The Literacy Council has a waiting list for the program but is willing to move Sandy Mush residents to the top of the list since we do not have a public library in our community nor public transportation.

Please complete the below contact form with your information, and we will email you a registration form.

Mail completed forms to:  SMCC, PO Box 1686, Leicester, NC 28748

If someone prefers to complete their form verbally, they may call Greg Brookshire at Leicester Community Center:  774-3000
