First Literacy Lending Library

Thanks to a donation from the Nora Roberts Foundation, our Lending Library was established in 2018 and has been expanded to include a number of teacher resource books as well as high-interest, low level “whole books” for adult learners, ranging from GLE 1-10.

How You Can Borrow

Most teachers borrow and return books when they attend our workshops. You can also visit First Literacy by appointment to review the collection and borrow books. To view the full list of books available for loan click on the link in the red box.


• Teachers can sign out up to 15 books for up to 6 weeks.
• Books can be renewed if no one else requests them.
• We are not able to mail books to you, but you can mail them back to us if necessary.
• Teachers are responsible for replacing lost books.
