18, 2008 - Knox County's Imagination Library is celebrating
its third birthday from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, January 26 at Lawson

and games, all great fun that helps children build the tools they
need for literacy. They'll be able to make their own birthday hat,
decorate a cupcake, and pick up a free birthday t-shirt (while supplies
last). Children of all ages are invited to dress up in their favorite
fun costumes and enjoy the resources of Knox County Public Library.
Over the past three years, Knox County's Imagination Library has served
nearly 23,000 children and sent over 360,000 books to local families. Knox
County is leading the state in urban county registrations with 67% of the
eligible population enrolled in the program.
Imagination Library provides children from birth to their 5th birthday
who with a free, carefully selected hardbound book in the mail each
month. Titles are chosen by a team of literacy and child development
experts and explore a variety of themes, skills, and ideas. By receiving a
book each month, parents and caregivers get many opportunities to read aloud
to their children.
