Event description

Description

It’s all about the kids! We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the more than 800 children in Dane County who have graduated from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Children will be honored with a graduation ceremony led by Channel 27's Chief Meteorologist, Bob Lindmeier, pizza and a chance to run wild at the Children’s Museum. Space is limited! It’s bound to be a special event that celebrates our precious children and the power of books. Special remarks by Renee Moe, President and CEO of United Way of Dane County.

We hope you will join us for this free event! In lieu of purchasing a ticket, please consider making a donation to support this program.

About Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
Each participant receives a FREE specially-selected, age-appropriate book through the mail EACH month, building home libraries with up to 60 books! Books are personalized with the child’s name and mailed directly to the child’s home to create a gifting experience that makes books exciting and encourages families to spend time enjoying books together. When they turn 5, participants receive the graduation book, Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come. It prepares them for the adventures of school and sets them on their way to a lifetime of learning and reading.

All children are Born Learning, and we are working hard to ensure that “all children are cared for and have fun as they become prepared for school.” Ensuring that every family has access to books to support early childhood literacy, brain development, positive parent engagement and long-term foundations for learning, is a critical part of early learning.

Special thanks to our anonymous donor and the Caritas Foundation for their generous support, to our outreach partners for getting books into the hands of our youngest citizens, and to our media sponsor, WKOW! Additional thanks to our generous in-kind sponsor, Roman Candle, for making this event possible!
