Last week, Imagination Library of Washington, powered by United Ways of the Pacific Northwest, was awarded a $50,000 grant from the Puyallup Tribe Charity Trust Board to expand the Imagination Library program to additional families living in Pierce County. This very generous contribution will provide more families the opportunity to enroll their eligible children for monthly books from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. Children from birth up to the age of five can sign up to receive a high quality, age-appropriate book every month mailed directly to them once they are registered. 

"We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of the Puyallup Tribe of Indians Charity Trust Board! Community support like this is critical for our local program partners to continue providing this early literacy opportunity to Washington children,” stated Imagination Library of Washington Executive Director, Brooke Fisher-Clark.

On December 6, the Puyallup Tribe Charity Trust Board awarded 43 local organizations a combined $600,000. Representatives of nonprofit and charitable organizations were greeted and thanked by members of the Puyallup Tribal Council as they arrived for the celebration at the Emerald Queen Event Center in Tacoma.

To date, more than 108,000 Washington children are enrolled in the Imagination Library. For information on how to enroll an eligible child or support the statewide efforts to get more books to young children, visit
