Our Program

Our Story

Imagination Library of Montgomery County, Maryland was started by two friends, Susan Greif and Debbie Pollak, in May of 2015. They share a love of books and reading, and want to share that passion with young children. Peter Greif joined our team and serves as the IT Department. Julie Hunter and Susan Adams help us stay in touch with families. The program currently registers children in the 20850, 20903 and 20895 zip code areas. We have mailed over 2,500 books since we began. We hope to grow and expand the coverage area as fundraising continues.

News You Can Use

Scholastic Books has issued a Kids and Family Reading Report. Their director, Liza Baker, emphasized that it is important to read with children from infancy - even at 8 weeks old, children can focus - even if it is momentarily. 75% of parents indicate they read aloud with their children before the child's first birthday. But we want it to be 100%! Unfortunately, there is a drop in parents who read with their children after age 5 - but it is still vital to continue the habit.
