Description:

Connections 4 Kids, in collaboration with Moffat County Youth United Way, continue to offer Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Moffat and Rio Blanco counties. Imagination Library is a program that offers high-quality, age-appropriate books to children from birth to age 5. The program is free to families and limits registration only by age and residence, not socio-economic status or other factors. All children who sign up receive a free book, mailed to their home, once a month through their fifth birthday.
Children graduate from the program the month of their fifth birthday and receive their final book, “Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come!”
Our goal through Imagination Library is to strengthen parent child interaction, improve literacy competency in young children and build a love of reading and a strong foundation for them as they enter preschool and kindergarten.
