Learning to read doesn't start in kindergarten or first grade. Developing literacy skills begins at birth through loving interactions such as reading aloud.
Children's reading skills are a foundational cornerstone for a lifetime of education and learning, so it's important to get age appropriate books to kids at their earliest learning stages. United Way of Wells County participates in the Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program which addresses this exact need.
Currently, over 900 local children receive a free, high-quality book in the mail each month. By their 5th birthday, a child will have a library of sixty books!
