Do you serve low income Children First Books could help.
Do you serve low income families? First Books is dedicated to serving low income families to prevent illiteracy. They want children to live in print-rich environments. If your agency serves a population of 70% or more low income families then First Books can help you to get new books into you program.
You need to register at their website. http://www.firstbook.org/ Even if you do not serve low income families it is a great site to see what books are available and they do accept donations. What a great way for Girl/Boy Scouts to earn a patch to raise dollars for other kids to have books to read. Also, this would be a great way for families to volunteer. Help your children to realize not everyone is able to just go and buy a new book. I applaud First Books and the work they do!
