About Ferst

Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy is a 501c(3) Non-Profit Organization whose mission it to develop literacy among young children. Early reading experiences enhance children’s chances of becoming successful students, and ultimately, educable members of the area work force.

Funds raised are used to provide FREE, new, quality, age appropriate books for registered children in our county between the ages of 0-5. These books are for ALL children in Carroll County regardless of race, religion, or financial need. Books are mailed to children each month. Currently, we are providing books for over 3,000 children monthly and our registrant base is still growing.
