First Book provides new books to children in need, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy—access to books.
An innovative leader in social enterprise, First Book has distributed more than 85 million free and low cost books in thousands of communities.
First Book-Brooklyn offers both donation and volunteer opportunities.
A tax-deductible donation to First Book will fund new books for children in need and help knock down the greatest barrier to literacy development in our community—access to books. Every $10 buys five new books for a child in need, and 97 cents of every $1 you contribute goes directly to First Book’s mission—making it possible for us to reach more children with more wonderful new books.
