Ensuring a Great Start for Jackson's Children!

Make a Donation to Support Imagination Library of Jackson County!

Through the Imagination Library of Jackson County, Great Start and its partners have provided more than 250,000 free books to young children in the Jackson community.  Local donations are sought to provide the financial support needed to keep this program going from year to year.  

It costs just $30 to provide one child with a free book each month for one year.  This cost includes the costs associated with purchasing and mailing a quality, age appropriate book each month to every registered child.  All other program costs are provided on an in-kind basis by the Great Start Collaborative of Jackson County and Jackson District Library, the program partners that administer and manage the program locally.

Donations to the Imagination Library of Jackson County Program Fund at the Jackson Community Foundation can now be made online using a secure donation site.  All donations made through the Imagination Library donation link go directly to support our local program.
