Morristown Hamblen Imagination Library Advisory Council 

(a separate division of the Morristown-Hamblen Library)

About Us

In March 2017, the Hamblen County Imagination Library Partnership began exploring the creation of a community based long-term growth and sustainability solution for the local Imagination Library program.   Partners were convened for the discussion with the outcome being the formation of the Morristown Hamblen Imagination Libary Advisory Council (MHILAC) that would operate as a separate division of the Morristown-Hamblen Library.

A strategic plan was created that included a description of roles and responsibilities.  A bank account was established, officers elected, a five-year financial plan developed and initiated in December 2017.  The transition became official when the Morristown Hamblen Imagination Library Advisory council assumed management and facilitation of the Hamblen County Imagination Library program.

The Advisory Council will continue to expand in membership and partnership to ensure the long-term sustainability of this vital literacy program for Hamblen county’s birth to five-year-old children and their families.
