What Sherburne County Area Families have to say about Imagination Library:

“My son loves checking the mail for his book! He gets so excited when The Day arrives!”

“I think the most important part, for my daughter, of receiving her books is that she says they are HERS. She loves seeing her name on them, the feeling of receiving mail, and loves seeing what the new book is each month.” 

“My granddaughter looks forward to “HER OWN” books coming in the mail. She has 2 older brothers that Do Not want her touching their books, plus they aren’t books for her age anyway. She has me read her the books over and over again, then the next one comes and that becomes another favorite of hers for me to read over and over again! I love listening to her te tell the story to others too.”

“The diversity of the books has been amazing. Different subjects, cultures, relatable issues. Many times my child is learning something important that I would’ve never even thought to pick a book about.”

“I am a Mexican American, trying to make sure that my children and grandchildren do not lose the culture and I have absolutely loved, that some of the books that my granddaughter has received are bilingual and some ethnic aspects/traits, hair, stories from different countries. etc. I Love this! Gracias!”
