Imagination Library offers the gift of literacy

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Imagine putting books in the hands of young readers.

It only takes $25 per year to give a child a book each month for one year and the Lake County Literacy Task Force wants to make sure all of the children in Lake County have this opportunity.

Children are eligible and need sponsorships to continue to receive books until their fifth birthday.

Gather up friends, neighbors, and coworkers and help to write a page in Lake County’s Book of Literacy. 

Gift cards commemorating your donation “in honor” of a special person and a tax deductible donation receipt will be mailed to all donors.

Send donations to the Lake County Office of Education at 1152 S. Main St., Lakeport CA 95453,. attention Imagination Library.
