COLUMBUS (WKBN) – Fran DeWine is highlighting efforts to increase enrollment in the governor’s Imagination Library — especially among babies.

The program gives one free book to any child, from birth through age 5, each month.

The goal is to make sure every kid goes into kindergarten ready to succeed.
