Imagination Library

 


 

Educators have emphasized the fact that reading with a preschool child is the single most important activity to help prepare a child for school.  The Dolly Parton Imagination Library was created to guarantee access to books and to inspire parents to read to their children as much as possible.


United Way of Southwest Minnesota is sponsoring Imagination Library in this area so that every child (ages birth - 5th birthday) who is enrolled will receive an age and developmentally appropriate book each month at home.  The books are free for each child and every child is included as long as they live within one of the school districts* in our service area.


If you would like to contribute to the cost of the books or to sponsor a child, you can give specifically for this purpose to the United Way of Southwest Minnesota.  Program sponsorship costs United Way of Southwest Minnesota approximately $30 per child, per year.


*To participate in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library through the United Way of Southwest Minnesota sponsorship, families must live in one of the following school districts (private and charter schools are included):  Canby, Dawson/Boyd, Fulda, Ivanhoe, Lake Benton, Lakeview, Lincoln HI, Lynd, Marshall, Milroy, Minneota, Murray County Central, Russell-Tyler-Ruthton, Tracy Area, Westbrook-Walnut Grove or Yellow Medicine East.
