Over the past five years, SC Johnson has supported Kids Can Fly and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, by helping to fill a child’s home with books and encourage their whole family’s love of reading.  With the Imagination Library, children from birth to age five receive a free, personalized book in the mail every month.  Children experience the joy and fun of receiving a book every month, chosen just for them and their stage of life—at no cost to families.

Kids Can Fly wanted to ensure that the SC Johnson team members and their families could share in the joy of reading too with a Little Free Library installed outside their employee entrance.

“Kids Can Fly and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is proud to partner with SC Johnson in helping ensure Brantford and Brant County children have access to books to improve early literacy and get them off to a good start before entering school,” said Jeanne Smitiuch, Regional Director for the Dollywood Foundation of Canada,  “a new report released this week by the Canadian Children’s Literacy Foundation reinforces the importance of powerful partnerships like this one, which focuses on early literacy as a strong foundation for future success of children”.

The Little Free Library was constructed by high school student, Blake Gibson at Organized Kaos, which exists to apprentice young people in life and trade inspiring hope and purpose working and learning alongside skilled trades persons in the community.
