What is First Book?

first bookNYSUT is putting first books in the hands of students with the help of the non-profit organization First Book Inc., and the American Federation of Teachers, a NYSUT national affiliate. Books are made available at low to no cost to high-needs schools and nonprofit programs serving low-income families and kids in need.

First Book Inc., obtains new, high-quality books donated from book publishers and through monetary donations from people and companies that support the program.

To get books for your school or program, visit www.firstbook.org/aft to register.

Do you remember the joy of your first book? Get involved!

Each time NYSUT gets 2,000 pre-K-12 educators, staff and board members to register their names at www.firstbook.org/aft, we get another free truckload of books. Do it today!
