For Schools and Educators
School & Educator Benefits
Red Balloon Bookshop loves our schools! We’re happy and excited to help add great books to your school’s library and classrooms.
CHILDREN'S BOOK SPECIALISTS
From the newest, hottest novels, to classics, to specific nonfiction titles, we are dedicated to finding the best books for you and your students. In order to give you the best customer service, please call to set up a personal shopping appointment with our knowledgeable staff. We are excited to start working on great book selections for your classroom or library!
Schools receive a 20% discount on most purchases and orders. Some exceptions apply.
AUTHORS and ILLUSTRATORS IN SCHOOLS
We can bring creative, interactive programs by authors and illustrators from around the country to your school or library. Working together, we will ensure that these visits are exciting and successful for you and your students. You can even use these visits as fundraising opportunities.
Kids love field trips, so why not show them how a local business works? Bring your class to Red Balloon and we'll give them a tour and discuss and how our books make their way to the shelves.
You tell us what you want for your classroom or library, we keep the list. Just tell your school and community we have your wish list and we'll help them find what you need.
SUMMER READING LISTS
Share your list with us and we will keep those titles in stock. We’ll also have the list on hand for your students.
PK – 12 teachers and librarians and children’s and youth services librarians at public libraries receive a 20% discount on all purchases. Educators and librarians only need to show us the current year’s school or library ID to receive our Red Balloon Educator Card.
Red Balloon Bookshop is happy to help you raise money while adding great books to your classrooms and/or to your students’ homes. Let us know what fundraising options works best for your school.
BOOKFAIR AT YOUR SCHOOL
We provide the great selection of books. You provide the space and the volunteers to work the bookfair. We can select all books for you. Teachers, librarians and/or parents can request books. Or we can do a combination of both. Your school will receive a percentage of sales in store credit or in cash.
BOOKFAIR AT RED BALLOON
Simplify your life and the lives of your school volunteers -have a bookfair here at Red Balloon! Your school will receive a percentage of sales in store credit or in cash. We’ll supply our complete selection of terrific books and our knowledgeable staff (we’ll even gift wrap for you!). You supply the refreshments, entertainment, or anything else you’d like to add to make this a successful FUNdraising event!
Looking for a more meaningful and longer lasting way to celebrate birthdays at your school? Have your librarian or teachers create classroom/library wish lists. When it’s time to celebrate a child’s birthday, the parents (or grandparents, or uncles, aunts, grandparents, siblings, neighbors, or even your father’s sisters’ cousin’s former college roommate) can purchase those books at Red Balloon at a discount, and deliver the book to the school for the birthday celebration.
