North Star Imagination Library

Partnering with the Denali Borough!

About the program

Since May 2008, the North Star Imagination Library has been registering children to receive free, age-appropriate books every month in the mail. There are no income requirements, children must simply be under the age of five and live in the North Star Borough or the Denali Borough.

To date, over 515,000 books have been delivered into the hands of children from Fox to Salcha, Two Rivers to Ester, and thousands of households in between.

Total enrollment continues to grow even with hundreds of children moving away or graduating (turning five). Preschools, child care centers, WIC, and the Fairbanks Children’s Museum are just some of the places enrolling children around town.  According to the 2010 census, almost 8,000 children under five live in the North Star Borough. Our goal is to enroll them all!
