The Imagination Library Board is asking for your support as they prepare for their third annual Carnival. During the Carnival, a Silent Auction will be held as a major fundraiser.
The Imagination Library fosters a love of reading among preschool children and their families by providing them with a specially selected book each month at no charge to them. The costs of this wonderful program are shared between the Tennessee Governor’s “Books from Birth” Foundation and Friends of the Johnson County Library.
The Carnival is one of the few ways funds are raised for this worthwhile project. This year it will be held at the Johnson County Library August 30, 2016 from 4-7 pm.
While kids are enjoying outdoor activities, a ticket-style Silent Auction will be held inside. Donations of new items and gift certificates for this auction will make a major impact in helping to run this worthwhile reading program throughout the year. Auction donations are gratefully accepted up to the July 29th deadline. Items will be on display and bidding tickets can be purchased August 1-30 at the library. Cash donations help as well. $13 supports 1 child for a year; $65 supports 5 children for a year. Each donor will receive a certificate of appreciation and businesses/individuals making a donation valued at $25 or more will have their name on the 2017 Carnival t-shirt.
To make a donation please call Lisa Young at 423-471-1768 or Barb Gratsch at 423-727-4227.
