First Book is a great resource for free and low-cost books. First Book distributes books in three ways:
- First Book Advisory Board volunteers fundraise in their communities to provide grants of new books to local programs that serve children from low-income families.
- The First Book National Book Bank distributes brand-new books, donated by publishers, free of charge to programs serving children from low-income families, or for a minimal shipping fee.
The First Book Marketplace is an online store offering programs serving children from low-income families the ability to purchase award-winning books at greatly reduced prices.
