Imagination Library

Imagination-Library-logo.jpg

Through the United Way of Summit County’s Imagination Library, preschool children receive free books! Each month, a brand new, age-appropriate book will be mailed to every child enrolled. With the arrival of the first book, the classic “The Little Engine That Could,” children begin to experience the joy of finding their very own book in their mailboxes. These moments continue each month until the child turns five, and in their very last month in the program the book they receive is “Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come.”
