Coralville Public Library increasing opportunities for children to enjoy books at home



Coralville, Iowa – To increase opportunities for all young children in Coralville to enjoy books at home, the Coralville Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Coralville Public Library have collaborated with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

“We are so excited to offer Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to young children in Coralville and rural Johnson County. The Coralville Public Library is always looking for ways to get books into the hands of children! This is yet another way for us to nurture early literacy, and for the Library to connect with children and families in our community,” said Alison Ames Galstad, Library Director.

The Imagination Library wants to create a lifelong love of reading in children by increasing access to books at home and encouraging families to spend quality time together reading.

Every month, registered children will get a free, age-appropriate book in the mail, which will be addressed precisely to their interests. Families are not required to pay anything.

Children under the age of five who live in Coralville or in rural Johnson County are eligible to enroll in the Imagination Library of Coralville, which is located in Coralville.
