First Book National Book Bank Offers Free Books for Children
The First Book National Book Bank (FBNBB) provides new books to children from low-income families across the country using generous donations from children's book publishers, service donors, and volunteers. Eligible organizations include non profit organizations with at least 80% of their children coming from low-income families and Title 1 schools. The books must become the personal property of the children. Receiving books through the First Book National Book Bank (FBNBB) is a two-step process. First, you must register at the FBNBB website. After you register, you will receive notifications via e-mail or fax alerting you when book distribution applications are available. Filling out the application is the second step. Through the FBNBB, your program may receive up to three books per child once a calendar year. View the FBNBB’s Frequently Asked Questions.
