Celebrating the Power of Reading
United Way of Junction City/Geary County is proud to partner with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library through a grant made possible by the Kansas Masonic Literacy Center.
What is it?
Each month, a new, carefully selected book will be mailed to a child directly to their home. Children birth to age 5, are eligible toreceive a free book, each month, regardless of the parents' economic position.
How can I get involved?
If you would like to sponsor a child, simply make a donation to United Way of Junction City/Geary County and let us know that it is for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. That's it! $25 will cover the cost for 1 year. $25 and a child receives a book every month, which equals out to be $2.08 a book.
