We Celebrated the 10th Anniversary of Tennessee's Imagination Library!

Our celebration of the 10th anniversary of Books from Birth and Tennessee's Imagination Library was a huge success!  Over 350 people enjoyed food and fun activities including a visit from First Lady of Tennessee, Crissy Haslam! Special thanks goes out to the vendors who donated their services: Mama D's Italian Ice, Mid-South Therapy Dogs, Roxywood Farms and Chick Fil-A! Thanks also to Shelby County Books from Birth for making this day happen. Books from Birth helps put children on a path to success in school and life by providing age-appropriate books for children from birth to age 5.
