IMAGINE if every child in Northwest Illinois entered school ready to learn and with a love of reading. The United Way of Northwest Illinois is partnering with local individuals and businesses to achieve just that by bringing Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to Jo Daviess, Carroll and Stephenson Counties. From birth until a child's 5th birthday, children enrolled in the program receive a new, age-appropriate book mailed to their home each month. By the time these children enter kindergarten, they have their own library of books, are more prepared to enter school, and excited about reading. All families in Jo Daviess, Carroll and Stephenson Counties with children birth to age five are eligible to enroll.
