Imagination Library

Through the United Way of Summit County's Imagination Library, preschool children receive free books! Each month, a brand new, age appropriate book will be mailed to everychild enrolled. With the arrival of the first book, the classic “The Little Engine That Could,” children begin to experience the joy of finding their very own book in their mailboxes. These moments continue each month until the child turns five, and in their very last month in the program the book they receive is “Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come.”

All children ages birth to five in Summit County are eligible! 

Register your child to receive free books!

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 Summit County. Enjoy reading these books with your child! For more information call 330.762.7601 or by email [email protected].
