Improve Kindergarten Readiness And Family Reading Habits

FREE BOOKS FOR CHILDREN FROM BIRTH TO AGE 5 are available in our community from The Literacy Cooperative and the Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library.

Did you know that the “single most important factor influencing a child’s educational success is an introduction to books and being read to at home before starting school”? (National Commission on Reading). As a parent or caregiver, snuggling up and reading daily with your child is one of the most important actions you can take to help set them up for future success.

Help us build stronger brains and promote a love of books and reading among children in our community by spreading the word about this wonderful book gifting program that mails free, new, age appropriate, high quality books to registered children's homes from birth to age 5.  

There is no cost or obligation to the child’s family. It truly is a FREE GIFT!  

To enroll, parents of children age 4 ½ years old and younger can visit your local library or enroll online at and click on the Imagination Library pop-up graphic. Books arrive eight to ten weeks after registering. Click here  for more information or contact Joan Spoerl, Imagination Library Director for The Literacy Cooperative at or 216-776-6186.
