Imagination Library

Expanding literacy for all Mendocino County children age 0-5

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We regret to inform you that FIRST 5 Mendocino and Raise & Shine Nonprofit must say goodbye to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program. If your child is under age 5, you will continue to receive books through December of 2020. We hope that your family has enjoyed the Imagination Library books and that you will continue to read together every day.

We remain committed to early learning and literacy and are working diligently to find an alternative to the Imagination Library program that is a better fit for our community. As we look for a new early literacy program, we hope to include more engaging activities for the families and ensure that there are more bilingual and multicultural books.

As of July 1st, no new enrollments will be accepted, and the program will officially close to all currently enrolled effective December 31, 2020.

Thank you for your understanding as we navigate through this change. If you have any questions please reach out to us.

Julie Fetherston, 
Interim Executive Director/CEO
