Free Books Every Month for Children in Atlanta’s Westside Community

Through funding from The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, Ferst Readers is partnering with the Westside Education Collaborative to register children to receive quality, age-appropriate books monthly.

Ferst Readers’ books are mailed directly to the home with useful literacy resources to help parents engage in reading with their children. Our monthly book program seeks to improve and support school readiness in the Westside community by building home libraries that will provide language-rich environments for children birth to age five.

The Ferst Readers program is currently available to children under five who live or attend early learning centers within the 30314 and 30318 zip codes.

For questions or more information, contact Jervonia at  or 706-343-0177. 

To get started, simply fill out the registration form below. Once you have registered, it will take 2-3 months to receive your first book in the mail.

Early Reading Benefits

The key is to start at birth. Immersing a child in a rich literacy environment can be a stronger predictor of literacy and academic achievement than family income. The more words a child hears, the larger the child’s vocabulary, and the larger the child’s vocabulary, the more likely the child will be a proficient reader.
