Support the Imagination Library

It costs about $30 a year for each St. Joseph County child who participates in the Imagination Library. You can help ensure this program’s long-term success by making a donation to support it at Under “I Want My Gift to Support...”, choose “The Imagination Library Fund.” Because of your generosity—and the generosity of our many other committed program sponsors—our county’s youngest members will receive bright, beautiful books in the mail every month.
