First Book National Book Bank: free quality books for children in need
Sign up to get new books and resources for the kids you serve.
First Book is a non-profit that provides new books and educational resources – for free and at low cost – to schools and programs serving children in need, from birth to age 18. Our purpose is to raise the quality of education for children by making sure they have access to the resources they need to be successful in school and in life.
Why do I need to register?
First Book is able to make new, high-quality books and resources available to schools and programs like yours thanks to our partners in the publishing industry, who want to be sure the books are going to organizations serving children from low-income families. We take that promise to our partners very seriously. By registering, you are giving us the information we need to ensure that our books and resources are reaching the children in greatest need.
