Imagination Library, Paying it Forward, Free books to Preschool Kids in New Milford, Bethel and Danbury

October 27, 2010

Imagination Library, what a fantastic idea!!! Free books for preschool kids AND a way to PAY IT FORWARD! All at the same time!

Western CT United Way Imagination LibraryThe Dolly Parton imagination Library, together with the United Way of Western Connecticut has teamed up to provide children 4 and under a FREE age appropriate book every month. The books are shipped free of charge to the child. There is no selection criteria other than age, and the child must be a resident of New Milford, Danbury or Bethel Connecticut.

What a great thing! I loved to read books when I was a child, I couldn’t read enough of them or read them fast enough! I still love to read. I love sitting with my grandchildren and watching the pages of the books come alive in their eyes. You can never have enough books!

Dolly Parton started the Imagination Library in Tennessee, her own parents had very little education, and she feels very strongly about teaching children to read. The idea grew, and partnering with The United Way of Western Connecticut, her vision is a reality for our preschool children here in New Milford, Danbury and Bethel.
