In just a few minutes, you can give your child the gift of books! Through our partnership with Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library, you can sign up any child from birth up to age five to receive a new book in the mail each month at no cost to you. Studies have shown that children with 25 books in the home are more likely to complete an additional two years of school than their peers. With Imagination Library, your child has the opportunity to receive up to 60 books by the time they turn five. Enroll now for your child to receive a new, free book each month!

Through this activity, caregivers are not only providing education to their child, but also a time for family interaction and bonding.  The vision of the program is to introduce reading and comprehension to foster a love of for books and reading at an early age. There is no cost or obligation to the families who continue to live in an eligible zip code.  Best of all--new books are chosen each year so if siblings participate you have different books each year to grow your home library!

Easterseals also hosts free events in our Imagination Library neighborhoods to connect families with local community resources, fun interactive activities and of course we give away more FREE BOOKS!

We currently serve families living in:

These books don’t just bring families together, the books will bring an entire state together. Collectively, all of the partners and affiliates are making sure that every child, in every neighborhood, in every town, in every county in Ohio can access these books. We will bring our entire state together to build a culture of literacy in Ohio.
