Help Support Quality Early Education
thread works with and supports thousands of Alaska’s families and early educators by providing resources like teaching materials and books, family friendly events and high quality training for early educators. We invite you to join us in supporting quality early care and education for Alaska’s children.
It's so easy.
The Imagination Library is an exciting program where your child(ren) can receive a free book in the mail each month while they are between the ages of birth to five years old. Each child will receive an age appropriate book selected by experts in early childhood literacy. This great program encourages literacy skills and pre-literacy skills in children. Reading with your child helps his/her brain development and prepares him/her for success in school and life.
thread is proud to support Imagination Libraries across the state. The Imagination Library program aligns with the work of thread to empower parents with the tools and resources to increase and encourage healthy child development.
Here is what families had to say about Imagination Library:
"The Imagination Library books are such a fun experience for both of my sons. My boys have always enjoyed books, and the Imagination Library helps to bring a new excitement to our evening reading time". - Allison Erickson, mother of boys: 4 years and 20 months
"I appreciate the Imagination Library Program. I really enjoy reading books with my toddler. The reading program provides books right to my door that I ordinarily wouldn't have. I can also pass these books onto other moms in our community when our family is finished. Thanks for your generosity Imagination Library". - Amber Krueger
