This is such a great free opportunity for families--please take advantage of it! Thanks to the Northfield Area United Way and Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program, area children can receive a free book in the mail every month until they turn five. The selections are wonderful, too: they include classics and recently released titles, are matched to your child's age, and culminate with Nancy Carlson's Look Out, Kindergarten, Here I Come!
Parton began the Imagination Library program to encourage children and parents to read together, to foster a love of reading, and to ensure that families of all income levels could own books at home.
The program is FREE to families who live in the Northfield area: Northfield, Dundas, Dennison, Nerstrand, Lonsdale, Montgomery, Webster, LeCenter, and Kilkenny.
To sign up, simply contact Northfield Area United Way.
Give your next family stroll downtown an early literacy boost! Print out a "Division Street ABC" sheet or pick one up at the library. Then have fun hunting for letters together while strengthening letter knowledge and print awareness skills.
Check off each letter as you find it. When you finish, bring your completed ABC sheet to the Children’s Desk at the library and choose a small prize from our treasure box!
