Plant the Seed for a Child to Read
Our 2021 COVID-friendly virtual fundraiser to support the Dolly Parton Imagination Library
The Benefit of Books
Children ages 0-5 who register for Silverton's Imagination Library are mailed one age-appropriate book per month directly to the child’s address. This international, award-winning program instills a love of reading and books, and studies show that children who are read to regularly start school with larger vocabularies, print recognition, and better learning readiness. Silverton parents have reported that receiving the Imagination Library selections in the mail has been a highlight during a difficult pandemic-, fire-, ice-filled year.
Right now, there are 215 local children enrolled in the program, with over 75 having graduated since the program started in 2019. For children and their families, the books are FREE! In reality, it costs $25 per child, per year for the books. Kiwanis sponsors the program via fundraiser and grants. Since we are still unable to hold in-person events, we need YOUR HELP to maintain funding for young readers in our community for the next year!
