Salida's Sunrise Rotary Club is bringing Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to Salida School District. 

What is it? 

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a 60 volume set of books that begins with the children's classic The Little Engine That Could. Each month a new, age-appropriate book is mailed in the child's name directly to his or her home. Best of all, it is a free gift to the child, and there is no cost or obligation to the family. All students within Salida School District R-32-J are eligible starting at birth until their fifth birthday. 

What are the Benefits of this Program? 

Many studies have shown that money invested in the early literacy skills of our young children has a far-reaching impact. When parents read books to their children from birth, it provides them with the best possible start. Children develop literacy skills long before being able to read, and it is important to start at birth. 

Through the generous donations of individuals and organizations, the program can: 

  • Promote and encourage a love of reading among children.
  • Help ensure that children enter kindergarten with a strong ability to read and an eagerness to learn.
  • Strengthen the literacy level of our community. 
  • Promote parent-child interaction and bonding. 
  • Provide free, high-quality, age-appropriate books to young children. 

What You can do: 

Please consider a contribution to support this program. A $25 donation covers the costs to mail a child a book each month for a year. 

Your donation will help provide the gift of reading to children from birth until their fifth birthday in the Salida School District, in our own community!
