Over 200 people gather for Wild About Reading: On the Farm!

United Way of Northeastern Minnesota (UWNEMN) held their first Wild About Reading event on July 30th! This free family event at Cook's Country Connections in Cook, MN brought together familes to enjoy story time, plant a flower to take home, wagon rides, literacy activities and more!

UWNEMN used their Imagination Library program as the platform for the event utilizing farm themed books. Since 2008, over 5,600 children have been enrolled in Imagination Library. Children ages 0-5 years old enrolled receive an age appropriate book mailed directly to their homes once a month.
