The Batesville Herald-Tribune

---- — The Shopko Foundation Community Grant Program recently awarded a grant to the Imagination Library of Franklin County for the purpose of purchasing quality books for preschool-aged children from birth until age 5, thus providing each child enrolled with a 60-volume library of his or her own by the time he or she enters kindergarten, report Patti Wilhelm, ILFC grant writer.

These books are mailed each month directly to the child’s home at no cost to the family. ILFC was organized in 2007 and has provided this opportunity of reading readiness to 851 county children.
