Registration for Ferst Books

The parents of every infant born at Piedmont Henry Hospital (Henry County residents) are given the opportunity to register their child in Ferst Readers. These children will receive one free, age-appropriate book every month from birth to age 5. Children registered at birth and remaining in the program through age five will enjoy a home library of 60 books!


Reading specialists, children’s librarians, educators and child development specialists carefully select this 60-volume set of books. Many are childhood classics we all know and love.


Ferst Readers of Henry County currently has 1750 children on our registration rolls, receiving one book every month. We are not accepting online registrations at this time.
