The Collaborative Center for Literacy Development (CCLD) is excited to announce its engagement in a very unique early childhood literacy project. Late in 2015, CCLD began to develop and implement a specialized pilot project focused primarily in southeastern Kentucky based on Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. The premise of the Imagination Library is registered children from birth to age 5 receive one age-appropriate book each month in the mail (at no cost at all to the child/family). CCLD’s project enhances the book dissemination platform with videos and resources developed around each book. The key target audiences for which these videos are being developed are the children and their families. Each video includes literacy tips and strategies for families to engage in together as they enjoy each book.
