In a three-way partnership with the Geauga County Library Foundation, the Ohio Governor's office, and the Dollywood Foundation, the Ohio Governor's Imagination Library launched across Geauga County on March 2, 2020, which is
also Read Across America Day.
In just a few minutes, you can give your child the gift of books. Through our partnership with Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library, you can sign up any child from birth up to age five to receive a new book in the mail each month at no cost to you. Studies have shown that children with 25 books in the home are more likely to complete an additional two years of school than their peers. With Imagination Library, each enrolled child has the opportunity to receive up to 60 books by the time they turn five.
Paper forms are available at GCPL Branches if necessary. Geauga County residents are encouraged to visit or call their local
County partners are responsible for 50% of their county’s costs and the Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library matches those funds dollar for dollar. If you or your organization are interested in helping to fund the program in Geauga County, contact the Geauga County Library Foundation at 440-286-5739 or [email protected]
