United Way of Pitt County launched Imagination Library in May 2016 in partnership with Books from Birth Early Literacy Coalition of ENC. Imagination Library sends one high-quality developmentally-appropriate book in the mail every month beginning at birth until the child's 5th birthday. We have already enrolled over 5000 children in Pitt County! Yay! But, we want to enroll EVERY child in our county. All 12,600 of them!
Imagine the magic when kids run to kindergarten bookshelves, pick up a familiar book and say, “I have this book!” and then every other kid in the room says, “Me too!” Teachers tell us this level of shared experience and vocabulary makes a world of difference.
Every gift helps!
A $5.00 gift sends a high quality book to 2 children.
A $30.00 gift makes Imagination Library possible for one child for an entire year.
A $150.00 gift provides a library of 60 Imagination Library books to one child from birth until their 5th birthday.
We also accept checks! Please make it payable to United Way of Pitt County with Imagination Library in the memo and mail to:
