The Friends of the Prescott Public Library received an Arizona Community Foundation (ACF) of Yavapai County grant in the amount of $10,000 to use for the purchase of books and postage for Prescott Area Imagination Library (PAIL), an affiliate of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. PAIL offers this service to children between birth and age 5 in Prescott area zip codes 86301, 86303, and 86305.

The program began in August 2019, and 465 children now receive monthly books in the mail. PAIL is a collaboration between Friends of the Prescott Public Library, library staff, and Prescott Area Rotary Clubs, the organizations that provide the majority of funding for books and postage. ACF of Yavapai County grant funding will be used to fund increased participation in PAIL over the coming year.

PAIL was also selected as an ACF “Shining Stars” project. View all of the Shining Stars projects on the ACF of Yavapai County Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/watch/AZfoundation.Yavapai/. Videos that receive the most likes will receive additional funding from ACF.
