Biking for Books!

Children enrolled in the Imagination Library thank retired judge Peter Froehlich for donating his July earnings as a bicycle guide for Cycle Alaska! Peter’s donation to the Imagination Library helps support early literacy in our community. Children enrolled in the Imagination Library receive a free high quality book in the mail each month from birth until they turn five. In Juneau, children also receive a monthly Born Learning bulletin that is filled with ideas for reading with children and invitations to free local family events.

The Association for the Education of Young Children Southeast Alaska is the local coordinator of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in 12 communities including: Angoon, Craig, Haines, Gustavus, Kake, Klawock, Petersburg, Sitka, Skagway, Tenakee Springs, Wrangell, and Yakutat. Nearly 100,000 books have been delivered to young children since the program began in 2006. Studies show that children in the program are more prepared to enter school and become strong readers. Parents and children are so happy Peter is Biking for Books! Help us meet our goal of delivering 100,000 books to children in southeast Alaska! Call AEYC if you’d like to sponsor a child!
