First Book

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

Founded in 1992, by Kyle Zimmer, the organization has gone from distributing 12,000 books in year 1, to approximately 8 millions books in 2008. To date, First Book has distributed more than 60 million free or low cost books in thousands of communities.

First Book operates out of the U.S. and Canada, securing books from publishers. The organization doesn't take individual book donations, but at $2.50 per book, your dollar goes far.
