A recognized leader in social enterprise, First Book has pioneered groundbreaking channels to provide new books and educational resources at deeply reduced prices — and for free — to schools and programs serving children in need.

We provide teachers and program administrators with greater purchasing power and access to high-quality books that otherwise would not be available to them. Through First Book, educators can create enriched learning experiences for their students, and the children can enjoy an ongoing supply of wonderful new books.

We’re trailblazing new ways of doing good by applying smart business practices to make books available, affordable and accessible to educators serving the children in greatest need. First Book is building the first fully inclusive online community of programs and schools serving disadvantaged children and providing them access to educational resources like never before. First Book has created two innovative and powerful distribution channels: The First Book Marketplace and the First Book National Book Bank.
