Every child under five in the state can now have a book delivered to their house thanks to state funding and the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
The state is spending $1.6 million to offer the program to residents. Governor JB Pritzker says the modest investment from the state will pay off big.
Program partners will be needed in each county to spread the word about the program and help sign up children and families. Signups should be done on the Dolly Parton Imagination Library website.
The Immigration Library program mails more than 2 million books to children worldwide every month.
