Corvallis families with children under the age of 5 are now eligible to register for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library! The Imagination Library mails free, high-quality books to children from birth up until their fifth birthday. Books are available in English and Spanish, as well as braille/audiobook options.
Enroll your child online, or call the Library at 541-766-6793 to have a staff member assist you with registration over the phone. Once the registration is processed, books will be mailed monthly to the child’s home until their fifth birthday.
Thanks to a $55,000 grant from the Early Learning Hub of Linn, Benton & Lincoln Counties to support the region, Corvallis is now officially added and completes the three-county service area. Other funders that made the Corvallis launch possible include the Corvallis School District, Kiwanis Sunrisers Club of Corvallis, Corvallis Morning Rotary Club, and numerous donations from members of the community through the annual United Way campaign. Additional support for the multi-year collaborative effort comes from Samaritan Health Services, who help parents sign up through new baby care packages and select pediatric offices. The Corvallis School District and Corvallis-Benton County Public Library will encourage families to participate as well.
