The readergirlz are partnering with First Book on a massive giveaway for low-income teen readersâ€”125,000 free books that will be delivered before the holidays. There’s a catch, of course: Organizations serving these teens need to sign up by Thursday Dec. 2nd.
Register at http://booksforkids.firstbook.org/register/. The First Book National Book Bank distributes free books to any program that serve at least 80% children from low-income families.
First Book is also eager to answer questions, either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 866-READ-NOW or 866-732-3669. You can learn more about the organization at www.firstbook.org. If you participate, drop the readergirlz a note at email@example.com to be included in our blog roll of thanks to run December 31.
