Imagination Ashe’s free book-a-month program is for preschool children, and your child can be enrolled in the program if he or she is under the age of five and resides within Ashe County, North Carolina. There are no minimum or maximum family income requirements.

Enrolling your child is easy! Simply complete this online form or, if preferred, you can download a printable brochure/enrollment form HERE and mail it to:

Imagination Ashe
P.O. Box 1745
Jefferson, NC 28640

After enrolling, you will receive an e-mail (or postcard) confirming our receipt of your child’s Imagination Library book-a-month program registration and providing information regarding the enrollment activation status.

Your child’s Imagination Library books will begin arriving in your home six to eight weeks after your enrollment has been activated, and will continue every month until your child turns five. With the arrival of the first book, the classic "The Little Engine That Could", your child will experience the joy of finding his/her very own book in the mailbox – and spending quality time reading with you and other family members. The last Imagination Library book, "Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come", will be mailed to your child during the month he or she turns five. Just imagine: If you enroll when your child is first born, by age five your child will have received 60 Imagination Library books!

This program is a FREE GIFT to your child and you will NEVER receive a bill for the books. All that’s expected is that you will read to your child every day to support your child’s early literacy and language development and readiness for school. Funding to provide the free books comes from grants, sponsorship, and private donations. If you know of a business, organization, or individual who would like to donate funds to support this gift to Ashe County children, please let them know that they may do so by clicking the Donate button at the top of this website.
