MAY OUR BEARDS GROW LONGER & OUR LITTLEST LEARNERS READ STRONGER!
Men from across the Lakeshore and beyond have committed to grow a beard to support our littlest readers through our Beards for Books challenge, which runs Wednesday, March 1 through Friday, March 31.
The Dolly Parton's Imagination Library in Muskegon, Oceana, and Newaygo counties helps our children prepare for kindergarten by delivering books right to their door, and our Beards for Books challenge raises funds to ensure children across the Lakeshore have access to a free, age-appropriate book every month from birth through age 5. Learn more about our champions below, and support each of their journeys as part of our Beards for Books challenge. All donations will be matched, up to $35,000, through the generosity of Kay and Mike Olthoff!
