It's Our 19th Birthday!

It’s our 19th birthday today and we couldn’t be more excited!  Thanks to the support of our donors, partners, and volunteers, we have given over 80 million books to children in need. We are grateful to all of our supporters and the educators who help us fight illiteracy one book at a time.

Not only has this been a great birthday week for us,  we are also excited that both the New York Times and the New Yorker highlighted our work in recent articles. Please check out these articles to learn more about what we are doing to end illiteracy.

Although there is much to celebrate, there is still much more to be done. Find out more about how you can help First Book fight illiteracy by visiting
