All children in Erie County, Pennsylvania from the day of birth until their 5th birthday are eligible!
Books begin arriving at your home, eight to ten weeks after your completed registration form has been received and continue until your child turns 5 or you move out of Erie County. If your child’s address changes, you must contact United Way of Erie County, (814) 456-2937, in order to continue receiving books.
To maximize the impact of the Imagination Library, United Way of Erie County created Reading Buddies, a program that gives parents and other caring adults guidance and tips on early childhood reading. Developed by local reading specialists, Reading Buddies focuses on ways to increase the love of reading in young children.
The Reading Buddies program techniques are simple and proven! Parents and caring adults receive helpful tips and information on making the most of reading with their children. This leads to children being prepared for kindergarten and success in school! Children are welcome to attend Reading Buddies events, with activities provided in a separate, supervised area during the adult training. To attend an event near you, check out the Reading Buddies calendar!
Support for the Imagination Library is always welcome.
