First Book provides new books to children in need, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy access to books.

Educational Services:

Each year First Book distributes millions of free and low-cost books to disadvantaged children and the programs that serve them.


If you’re an educator or program administrator, and at least 70 percent of the children in your program come from low-income families, we can help. Eligible programs receive access to the:
First Book Marketplace offering new books at 50 to 90 percent off retail prices
First Book National Book Bank offering free books (pay only for shipping typically at 35 to 50 cents a book)
Book grants through First Book’s local Advisory Boards
