First Book-LCSC works to
increase literacy levels by providing an ongoing supply of
new books to children participating in existing
community-based literacy programs.
First Book-LCSC serves
children in Nez Perce, Lewis, Idaho and Clearwater counties
in Idaho and Asotin County in Washington. During the
upcoming year, 8,200 new books will be given to more than
800 disadvantaged children who are enrolled in literacy
programs. These book will be used in the curriculum
then given to the children to take home and keep.
First Book works with
publishers such as Scholastic, HarperCollins, Lectorum,
Simon & Schuster, Sterling Publishing and Random House to
provide these books at an average cost of just $2.50 per
book including shipping.
