Event Details 

Imagination Library Progressive Dinner is a multi-course dining experience allowing guests to experience a 4-course dinner prepared by local chefs and hosted in a wide range of homes in either St. Cloud or Sartell.
After registering for a themed meal, guests will gather at a reception home for appetizers and drinks. After a short program, guests will begin their "progression" by traveling to a first course home, followed by a different second course home, before returning to the reception home to enjoy desserts.  


Imagination Library encourages children to develop a love of reading by providing a FREE, age-appropriate book to every child participating in the program each month from birth until their 5th birthday.

Imagination Library is offered to families who live in the United Way of Central Minnesotas service area at no cost and is entirely funded by donations from families, corporations, grants, and fundraisers in Central Minnesota. United Way of Central Minnesota is committed to funding 7,000 children per month.
