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.
First Book-San Diego is committed to the First Book mission of providing children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. We meet once a month at the Pannikin Coffee House in Del Mar. We are always looking for new Advisory Board members to help us get books to the children who need them in San Diego County. Please contact us for more information! Thank you.
