Comcast gives to Imagination Library


NASHVILLE — Thousands of Tennessee children this year became “members” of the Imagination Library thanks in part to the year-long, statewide airing of a television public service announcement featuring Gov. Phil Bredesen and entertainment legend Dolly Parton.

At no cost to Tennessee’s Imagination Library partners, Comcast produced and aired the 30-second announcement 28,281 times, for an in-kind gift valued at more than $1.1 million.

In 2005, 55 of Tennessee’s 95 counties adopted the Imagina-tion Library, bringing the official number of counties offering the program to 83.

The remaining 12 counties have made a commitment to adopt the program in 2006.
