First Born Program of Los Alamos wants to thank the community of Los Alamos County for their support during our fall fundraiser with Samizdat Bookstore and Teahouse.  Jill Lang, owner of Samizdat Bookstore, hosted the second annual fundraiser last month for the program, and the community donated almost $400 and over 25 books to the First Born program.

As part of their early literacy efforts, First Born regularly shares age appropriate books well as a  variety of parenting books with families. Since their opening, First Born has purchased most of these books from Samizdat Bookstore. Owner Jill Lang generously provides a substantial discount to First Born stating, “A top priority for Samizdat Bookstore is to support the local community.” 

Please keep both of these organizations in mind these coming weeks – stop by Samizdat Bookstore and Teahouse for Small Business Saturday (and all the other fantastic local businesses!) and consider donating to the First Born Program of Los Alamos on Giving Tuesday.  We are honored this year to be part of “Los Alamos Gives” and donations can be made at:
