Tennessee’s Imagination Library Week

It’s that time of year again! Tennessee’s Imagination Library Week is Sept. 17-23, and we are asking you to join us on social media and #GetCaughtReading—and more! This year, we celebrate over 30 million books mailed since 2004. With such a large milestone, we have expanded the #GotCaughtReading social media campaign to include themes for each day of Imagination Library Week, revealing 5 different ways to participate on social media to help us raise awareness of Tennessee’s Imagination Library. Sample posts and required text/links for each daily theme can be found at the below link and on the attached document. You can pick and choose how you want to participate each day and post multiple times. We encourage you to share this with friends, family, coworkers, etc.
