Imagination Library: See What's Happening Around the State!

September 11, 2013

September 15th-21st is Imagination Library Week in Tennessee! During this week, local Imagination Library affiliates in all 95 counties will work to boost enrollment across the state by bringing awareness of the book program to communities.
