At ILA, we believe that collaboration is the key to successful projects and initiatives, and we welcome the chance to partner with other organizations to advocate for critical literacy initiatives.

Recent partnerships include joining advocates for literacy in getting the LEARN Act before Congress, collaborating with the National Association of State Title I Directors to bring literacy into communities through a Read & Feed pilot project, and partnering with the NASA to encourage educators and students to add 60 seconds of literacy activity each day for 60 days.

We look forward to further collaborations with these organizations and other fellow supporters of the literacy movement.

First Book's story

First Book

First Book wants to see every child read, learn, and reach their full potential.

This nonprofit organization works to elevate the quality of education and increase educational opportunities for kids at the base of the economic pyramid. First Book makes new, high-quality books and educational resources available to schools and programs serving kids in need.

What better way to get those books in the students' hands than with the help of ILA's vast network of educators?

We encourage educators and program leaders serving 70 percent or more children from low-income families, children with disabilities, or children from military families to sign up with First Book and gain access to best-in-class books and educational resources for free or deeply reduced prices.

Together, we can reach every child, every classroom, and every community. Sign up to have access to brand new books and resources today at
