A truck of 40,000 FREE books will be arriving in Detroit Jan. 25. These books are made possible by the work of the DFT and other local unions, the AFT, and an organization called First Book. First Book collects excess books from publishers and redistributes them at a nominal cost to children in need. That cost will be picked up by the AFT, the DFT, the Detroit Federation of Paraprofessionals and the Detroit Association of Educational Office Employees.
You can get a book for each child in your classroom by filling out a simple registration. We need 2,000 Detroit Public School teachers to register to get the books. Fill out the registration TODAY by visiting: www.firstbook.org/aft.
