Imagination Library

Changing Children's Lives, One Book At A Tim

When kids can't read, they can't succeed.  Children who struggle with reading and reading comprehension are more likely to have deficits in other subjects such as math, science, and spoken language.  More so, they are at heightened risk for chronic absence and failing to graduate high school.  Studies show young children reading at home with their parents help prepare them for kindergarten success, which then helps them become successful in academic achievement. 

What can be done to ensure our kids in Kenosha County succeed? 

Help us bring Imagination Library to Kenosha County and give the gift of reading to our children. 

What is Imagination Library?

Imagination Library was created in 1996 by famed country singer Dolly Parton to foster a love of reading in children and promote early childhood literacy.  All participating children from birth to 5 years of age receive free age-appropriate books mailed directly to the child's home every month.

This program is a perfect fit for United Way of Kenosha County's early childhood priority of school readiness and children's health development.

Donations are currently being sought to bring this program to Kenosha County.  As a nonprofit organization, we rely on local businesses and community donors to help us make a strong impact in our community. 

An investment in United Way of Kenosha County's Imagination Library helps us to reach young children so they are excited and ready to read in kindergarten and beyond.  Help our children be our future.
