 SCIL Celebrates 10th Birthday and Mailing of 500,000 Books!

The Sullivan County Imagination Library recently celebrated two milestones: its 10th birthday and the mailing of 500,000 Imagination Library books to local preschool children over those 10 years. Three businesses and one non-profit organization were honored for their long-standing commitment to early childhood literacy: Citizen’s Bank, Eastman Chemical Company Foundation, Eastman Credit Union, and Speedway Children’s Charities. Each has donated to the Sullivan County Imagination Library every year for the entire 10 years of our existence. When you see people from these businesses, please thank them for us. They care about the future of our children.
