Lewis-Clark State College
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.
The Lewis-Clark State College Campus Advisory Board is part of First Book’s national network of community volunteers who support First Book’s mission. Comprised of volunteers from all sectors of the community, the First Book LCSC Campus Advisory Board works to promote and facilitate the distribution of new books to literacy programs in the area served by Lewis Clark State College including Lapwai, Grangeville, Orofino, Kooskia, Kamiah, Clarkston, Asotin and surrounding areas.
