Imagination Library of Kentucky
The goal of the statewide expansion is to inspire a love of reading by making books available to children ages 0-5 in every zip code in Kentucky, regardless of the family’s income. Currently Kentucky has 90 programs covering portions of 76 of Kentucky’s 120 counties. 15% of eligible children in the state are currently receiving books through community Imagination Library programs. Thanks to funding from Kentucky State Legislators and the Kentucky Department of Education, the Imagination Library is now expanding to all 120 counties in the Bluegrass State!

Early Literacy Matters!
By gifting children high-quality books starting at birth, all children have access to developmentally appropriate reading materials at no cost to the family and regardless of the family’s income. Built on decades of research, the Imagination Library is rooted in the knowledge that having books at home fosters a love of books and helps children develop literacy skills early in life.

Help Us Reach Every Child In Kentucky
The Imagination Library of Kentucky is expanding to all 120 counties, thanks to dollar match funding from Kentucky State Legislators and the Kentucky Department of Education. Community programs raise 50% and the State matches 50%. As more children enroll, community programs must raise more funds to keep the momentum going and ensure that every child in every zip code is eligible to register for free books.
Did you know that with the state match, for only $12.50 you can provide an Imagination Library book to a child each month for 1 year?
And only $62.50 for 5 years! This is a great way to play a part in making the future brighter for children and families in your community.
