Give the Gift of Reading

     The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library will once again offer library patrons the opportunity to share the joy of books with children during the annual “Give the Gift of Reading” program. Gift of Reading donations will be accepted from November 27 through December 31. The beneficiary of this year’s Gift of Reading will be the Dolly Parton Imagination Library administered locally by the Literacy Coalition of Hancock County.

     The Imagination Library mails an age appropriate book each month to enrolled children ages 0-5. Numerous studies have shown that parent/child reading increases substantially in Imagination Library households. A study in Middletown, OH illustrated that children participating in the program scored 15% higher than non-participants in kindergarten literacy testing. Over 1,100 children are currently participating in Hancock County and over 750,000 children are enrolled in the Imagination Library in the United States.

     Donations to Gift of Reading may be made at the check-out desk in the library lobby area or by mail at Findlay-Hancock County Public Library, Gift of Reading, 206 Broadway  Findlay, OH 45840. For further information call the library at 422-1712.
