Imagination Library

The love of books is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child.

Reading to a child regularly opens up a whole new world of imagination and excitement. It is one of the easiest ways there is to prepare a child for school. Now it’s gotten even easier.

All children from birth to age five are eligible to have age-appropriate books mailed to their homes each month at no cost to the family. All they have to do is be registered and live in Bettendorf, Davenport, East Moline, Moline, Rock Island or in any town in Rock Island or Scott County.  Over 10,000 children are registered in the Quad Cities, which is approximately half of eligible children in our community. Parents and teachers both say that books help children learn words and concepts and prepare them for Kindergarten.

Sign up a child in your life for Imagination Library.   Eight to ten weeks after your registration form has been received, books will begin arriving at your home and will continue until your child turns five or you move out of Scott or Rock Island County.  Questions? Contact Amy Daniels or call 563-344-0344.

You can sponsor a child for one year of Imagination Library for just $30.   Donate to Imagination Library.
