Monongalia & Preston
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, each year First Book distributes millions of free and low-cost books to disadvantaged children and the programs that serve them.
First Book-Monongalia & Preston, WV, serves to promote literacy in rural areas of northern West Virginia. We have a diverse group of member and are always looking for more. We believe that with the power to read, you can do anything. Literacy is a key necessity to those who want to succeed. We strive to provide the tool in order for that to happen.
Book Grant Recipients
A typical book grant lasts for a six month period and offers each child in the program a steady diet of books (usually one book per month), all at no cost to the program. Because program administrators select the titles from the First Book Marketplace, our book grants enable programs — often for the first time — to select books to integrate into curriculum.
