Together the ScreenItFirst community helps parents, students, and teachers alike make informed decisions on age-appropriate reading materials. Although we maintain the site, this is a community we build together, and your involvement is instrumental to that end.

Be Kind. Be Respectful. Be Honest.

Only highlight individual passages or imagery that are specific and relevant to the selected category. The goal of this community is not to “ban” or “cancel” books, but to help parents, educators, and students find books that are age-appropriate.


All screens may be made public after moderator review and become the property of ScreenItFirst.


All screens are posted anonymously. Though you may subscribe/follow any book or search query your subscriptions are individualized and private. We do not collect nor store any information from users outside of explicit subscription requests. We never share your private or personal information with other organizations.


Accuracy in screening helps us get more books screened faster. We rely on the community to accurately categorize all screens with appropriate information on the ‘offending’ content. If your screen isn’t approved please don’t repost it for at least a week, we’re a husband/wife team that may not be able to get through all of the screens as quickly as they come in.


We reserve the right to exclude anyone or anything that violates our guidelines with or without notice.

If you see something inaccurate in a screen or book listing, or something you believe violates our guidelines, please contact us:
