First Book is a nonprofit social enterprise working exclusively with programs and schools serving kids in need to ensure that they have access to top quality books and educational resources at deep discounts. To become a part of the First Book network, sign up with First Book and receive immediate access to materials that the children you serve need to succeed.

Signing up with First Book is free for every educator working in a Title I or Title I eligible school or program. Books and resources can be used for your Read Across America initiatives, to build classroom libraries or home libraries, meet families’ basic needs, enhance school readiness, and more.

Here’s how to access books and resources for your students:

  • Sign up with First Book! Everyone reaching children from underserved communities is eligible to sign up with First Book to access free and low-cost books and resources.
  • Visit the First Book Marketplace to access deeply discounted brand new books, school supplies, and basic needs items for children ages 0-18. Be sure to check out the Read Across America section created in partnership with NEA, the Social & Emotional Learning hub, the Basic Needs section, Free Resources, and more.
  • Tell your fellow educators and community partners. Forward this link on to your fellow Title I educators, program staff, and community partners anywhere in the country, so they can sign up, too!
