Free Books for Pre-Schoolers

Tory Curran shares the following:

The Dolly Parton Imagination Library, through Smart Start Rowan, is a program which allows any preschooler (up to age 5) to receive FREE books once per month. The books arrive via the mail and are addressed to the child. The program NEEDS 2000 participants to continue to be funded and currently has around 1400. We need to spread the word about this great program.

To register:
1- go to Smart Start Rowan: www.rowan-smartstart.org
2- scroll down the page until you see Dolly Parton’s image and and a link.
3- click there and register away.

Please share this with anyone you know who may have access to small children. First steps in literacy are KEY to all of our success!
Thanks!
