Promoting early childhood literacy
The Imagination Library of Middle Tennessee provides one book per month to children from birth through age five across Davidson, Williamson and Sumner counties to boost language acquisition, literacy and kindergarten readiness. There is no cost to families, regardless of income.
Operated in partnership with the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation, United Way of Metropolitan Nashville is responsible for fundraising to cover the cost of the books and facilitating the delivery of books each month.
Celebrating a milestone
This year, Imagination Library of Middle Tennessee celebrated the distribution of their 5 millionth book. In doing so, Tennessee’s First Lady, Crissy Haslam read a story to the students of Fannie Battle Day Home for Children and presented the 5 millionth book to one of their students.
In addition, we are excited that PNC Bank has joined us in the celebration. PNC Bank has generously donated $25,000 to Imagination Library of Middle Tennessee. Together, we are announcing a $25,000 challenge grant to the community to support the efforts of Imagination Library.
Now through the end of January 2019 your donation will help us continue to promote early childhood literacy throughout Middle Tennessee.
