Avid in Schools

Avid Bookshop loves to work with educators, librarians, and teachers--the money you spend at Avid goes right back into your school's community. We love to help local schools foster the love of reading for students of all ages.


Author and Illustrator school visits
Avid Bookshop can bring authors and illustrators to your school for free--all you have to do buy is books! We’ve helped to bring award-winning authors and illustrators like Dan Santat, Jason Reynolds, Mac Barnett, Veera Hiranandani, Bethan Woollvin, and Christian Robinson to local schools, just to name a few. Interested in hosting a school visit? Email our Events team.

School orders
Are you a teacher or librarian looking to order books for your classroom or media center? Either fill out this form or email our school and institutional sales specialist, Ian McCord, and we will be in touch about your order or price quote. We offer a base 10% educator discount, with higher discounts for larger bulk orders.

Book fairs
We would love to host a book fair at your school or at our shop to help fundraising efforts! We order from several different publishers and offer a high quality, diverse selection of books with a variety of reading levels and prices. Contact us for more information if you are interested in an Avid book fair.

...And more!
We also offer book talks, educator nights, and field trips for school groups! Contact us for more information about any of these events.
