Reading matters a great deal to children. In fact, a quality education begins with reading. Education not only increases a child’s chance for success in work and life; it’s also been shown to be a core determinant of health.

That’s why United Way of Bedford serves as the Local Champions for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, a book-gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until they begin school, no matter their family’s income who are enrolled in the program.

Looking into enrolling your child? We are responsible for enrolling children who live within Bedford County.
