Samizdat Bookstore and Teahouse at 174 Central Park Square is hosting a fundraiser for the First Born Program to purchase books for babies, young children and their families Sept.15-Oct. 31. The goal is to raise $2,000 for First Born. 

How you can support Samizdat’s First Born Fundraiser: 

  • Stop by the bookstore and make a monetary donation for First Born to purchase books from Samizdat.
  • Purchase a book on First Born’s wishlist directly from Samizdat

As part of their early literacy efforts, First Born regularly provides families with age appropriate books to borrow and for birthday gifts. First Born also shares a variety of parenting books with families. Since Samizdat Bookstore and Tea House opened last Spring, First Born has purchased most all of these books from Samizdat Bookstore. 

Owner, Jill Lang always provides a generous discount to First Born stating, “A top priority for Samizdat Bookstore is to support the local community.” 

Now Lang is stepping up to support First Born in a new way. For the next six weeks, customers can donate to the First Born Program’s Book Fundraiser each time they visit the bookstore and support a local small business at the same time. No purchase is required to donate, though.

The First Born Program of Los Alamos is a free and voluntary home visiting program for all first time families in Los Alamos. The program is relationshipcentered and curriculumbased. Families who participate receive support, information about pregnancy, early childhood development, health, nutrition and safety and learn fun activities to help build brain development and learning. Through weekly home visits, families identify personal goals, recognize challenges and opportunities for growth and build a healthy, loving, playful relationship with their child.
