Celebrating 10 years of books to kids...

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.

Welcome to First Book-MidSouth

Giving children in need the opportunity to read and own their first new books!

Access to books is essential to reading development, yet many children from low-income families have no books at home. There are millions of children waiting for your help. Donate now to put new books into the hands of local children in need.
