Ways you can get involved as a parent

  • Read with Your Children: Dedicating just 30 minutes a day to read with your child will have an exponential impact on his or her literacy skills. Use it as a time to unwind from the day and make it part of their bedtime routine.

Check out this Healthline article that lays out the benefits of reading to your child.

  • Get a Library Card: A library card will not only grant you access to all the books in the Longview Public Library but also provides subscriptions to several digital resources, as well. As an added bonus, the Library sponsors programs to reward young readers, providing them with prizes for completing books!

Join the Longview Public Library today and get reading!

  • Volunteer at Your Child’s School: Let your child see that reading is important by watching you devote time to it. Read to them at home and their classmates at school.

  • Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library: A global initiative dedicated to enriching the lives of children by providing them with books. In collaboration with the Imagination Library, the Greater Longview United Way extends this impactful program to deliver hand-selected, age-appropriate, and high-quality books every month to registered children aged birth to five in Gregg County for free.  

    Partnering with the Imagination Library aligns with the National Assessment of Educational Progress, which emphasizes the positive correlation between academic performance and the presence of books at home.

    By offering this program at no cost, Greater Longview United Way contributes to the academic success of children in our community, with the belief that access to engaging books is a key factor in educational achievement. To sign up and learn more, go to longviewunitedway.org/dpil or contact Dr. Evan Dolive, Executive Director, at edolive@longviewunitedway.org
