Other Programs for Schools

Red Balloon Bookshop provides many ways for schools to share the love of books and joy of reading with your students!  We hope you can take advantage of these additional programs.



Through publisher support, Red Balloon Bookshop can bring nationally-touring authors and illustrators into your school!  Past visits have included authors and illustrators such as Annie Barrows, Lemony Snicket, Todd Parr, Shannon Hale, Mac Barnett, and Brandon Mull. 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.  The best part?  These visits are complimentary!  Please email Amy at for more information about these one-of-a-kind 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 how books make their way to our shelves.  Complimentary storytimes during this tour are also available.  Please email  Joan at to set up a behind-the-scenes tour.



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, uncles, aunts, siblings, neighbors, or even your father’s sister's 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.  Please email Julie at to learn more.
