First Book Registration

First Book is a nonprofit organization that annually provides millions of books to schools and programs serving children from low-income families. Register today to connect your program or school to First Book's resources.

First Book distributes books in three ways:

  • Need Free Books? The First Book National Book Bank distributes free books to programs that serve at least 80% children from low-income families.
  • Want Low-cost, High-quality Books? The First Book Marketplace is an online store selling books and educational materials discounted up 50 - 90% off retail prices to programs that serve at least 50% children from low-income families.
  • Interested in Grants for Books? First Book Advisory Boards make community level grants enabling programs that serve at least 80% children from low-income families to receive free books.

Ready? All it takes to register is a few minutes. The process is easy. Once registered, you'll receive news and emails that let you know when free books become available through the First Book National Book Bank and when new titles are available on the First Book Marketplace.
