500,000 Book Celebration!!!

YOU ARE INVITED  to join the Sullivan County Imagination Library Board 0f Directors as we celebrate the milestone of mailing of 500,000 books to Sullivan County children from birth to age five. This special program will be April 25 at the First Presbyterian Church on Church Circle, Kingsport, TN, from 10:00 a.m. to noon.

All Sullivan County children under the age of five years old may be registered by their parent for Imagination Library books which are mailed each month to the child’s home. There is no cost to the parent regardless of income. As an affiliate of the Dollywood Foundation, our board members maintain the data base of registered children and share the cost of the books with the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation. Many local sponsors have generously donated to help provide the necessary funds for this unique program.
Since the first order in October, 2004, 2,237 children have enjoyed the thrill of receiving their very own books.
Having books in the home and reading to children is the best indicator of success in school and later life.






Books in the Home Build:

Your tax-deductible donation to the Sullivan County Imagination Library will buy free, age-appropriate books mailed monthly to local children from birth to age five. This specially-chosen collection of books is designed to spark a love of reading.
