Imagination Library registration has reopened with the support of the AEP Foundation! If you or your company is interested in sponsoring this education initiative to help continue enrollment, please fill out the form below or call the United Way of Northwest Louisiana office (318) 677-2504.
This nationally recognized program sends a new high-quality, age-appropriate book each month to a child’s home at no cost to the family. If enrolled at birth, a child can receive their own personal library of 60 books. Research has shown that the number of books in a child’s home is significantly linked to reading scores – the more books, the better the score. For this reason, United Way of Northwest Louisiana wants to help more children have books in the home. Imagination Library is currently offered in the following zip codes: 71103, 71106, 71109, 71111, 71112, 71006, and 71064 of Caddo and Bossier Parishes; and all of Desoto, Red River, Sabine, Natchitoches, and Webster Parishes.
Thank you to the AEP Foundation and Denise Withers for supporting Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Northwest Louisiana!
