Child Reading 1

Polk County Ferst Readers is improving literacy in Polk County. We currently send a book a month to over 1100 children in Polk County ages 0-5 years old. That number is growing every month. We believe reading is important. Children enrolled in the Ferst Program receive a new book every month at no cost to them. 

Funding is provided through private donations, corporate sponsorships and grants. Contact us to if you would like to partner with us to bring the gift of literacy to a young child. Together, we can improve the literacy rate in Polk County and give children the tools they need for a successful life.
