Thank you to all our donors who have chosen to give the gift of reading. More than 3,600 children in Shawnee County have registered for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. The numbers keep climbing. Each month, wide-eyed youngsters open their mailboxes to find the gift of one free book.
Together, we believe in the power of literacy to change and enrich lives. Currently, less than 50% of incoming kindergartners meet the state benchmarks for early literacy. They are behind, even before they start. Because of your financial support, we are changing that.
