This spring, the Buckeye Community Bank staff partnered with The Stocker Foundation to raise funds for the incredible efforts of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which started in 1995, sends books monthly to participating children from birth to age 5 to foster a love of reading and imagination.

The Lorain County Imagination Library, established through The Stocker Foundation, works to increase children’s access to print materials, promote school readiness and encourage parents to read to their child every day. Research finds that reading aloud with a child is the most critical activity supporting children’s language and literacy development. Participating children receive one book mailed directly to their home each month, selected for its developmental benefits and fun.

More information and how to donate can be found at the Foundation’s website at stockerfoundation.org/special-projects.

Since its launch, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has shared more than 132 million specially selected books to brighten the days and minds of children in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Ireland.
