The Tornado that tore through Lincoln County on April 29th might have destroyed the Manderson's Imagination Library books, but it couldn't destroy the love of reading and books that had been instilled in the children. Thankfully, the volunteers from Lincoln County's Imagination Library program heard about the family's loss and were able to help.
