Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of Canada One Imagination Library Program for the preschool children in the community of Tuktoyaktuk,Aklavik, Sachs Harbour, Ulukhaktok, Paulatuk, Tsiigehtchic, Fort Resolution, Fort McPherson and Inuvik in Northwest Territories Canada.
The Imagination Library Program offers preschool children monthly books suited to their age in order to better prepare them for school and reading.
The Rotary E-Club of Canada One which has members located across Canada has selected The Northwest Territories in the Beaufort Sea Region on the Arctic Circle in the Northwest Territories to be the first locations for this program.
The Tuktoyaktuk community For example has a total growing population of about 900 people and 108 children in this age group as of 2014. The local Tuktoyaktuk Community Library located in the Mangilaluk School Library in Tuktoyaktuk has offered to Champion the program.
Rotary E-Club of Canada one is planning to raise $50,000 on fund raising campaigns. There are no fund raising costs as the Rotary E-Club of Canada One is a volunteer organization and donates the time and resources to do this.
