First Book is an impactful program aimed at giving books to children in need. ONA, our districts and our local units purchase heavily-discounted, brand new books through First Book to disburse to kids in our communities.
Being a volunteer is easy and truly joyful. Many of the children we encounter have never owned a brand new book before.
Volunteering for First Book events can mean transporting books, setting up book tables and handing books to kids.
We aim to have many First Book volunteers across the state to accommodate event requests from our community leader friends.
Many of ONA's districts and local units enjoy holding their own First Book events in their local communities. If you'd like to host your own event, just contact ONA and we'll supply the books!
