Donate on behalf of the First Library Plus™ program for first time mothers in need in your community & ReadYay! will double their donation.


First Library Plus (a First Library™ program for first time mothers in need) partners with existing nonprofit free book programs to promote early childhood literacy, journaling, library patronage, and healthy and responsible parenting through its incentive and reward program.  


Parents of children, newborn to age three, can "earn" points through various free reading related activities to shop for new books plus clothing and educational toys at their free online First Library Plus Shop™. New first time mothers also participate in parenting programs to qualify for the program.

GIVING & ENGAGING FIRST TIME FAMILIES IN NEED

Shop the First Library Plus section of Readyay! (items marked with a +) and help give books plus clothing and educational toys to first time mothers in need in your community.


61% of low-income families have no books at all in their homes for their families.

In middle-income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13 to 1, in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate for every 300 children. +

Of all parent-child activities, reading aloud provides the richest exposure to language, so promotion of reading aloud, especially for children from more disadvantaged backgrounds, holds great promise for strengthening school readiness and laying a strong foundation for future educational success.
