Teacher Resources


For many years we have based a large part of our success on selling books to educators. We have a large and varied inventory, including more than 20,000 children's titles. Our knowledgeable staff is available to help with the selection of books to use in your school's curriculum. And we are always happy to assist you in choosing books to fit into thematic units. We can arrange speakers for in-service or school presentations and provide semi-annual in-store presentations of the newest books. We also will arrange in-store bookfairs for fundraising for your school.   At Anderson’s Bookfair Company, we can arrange your in-school bookfair.  If you participate in our in-school bookfair program, you will be eligible to participate in our Authors-in-Schools program.   All educators receive a 20% discount off the list price for books to be used in the classroom or library. Also, if you are purchasing multiple copies of a single title, we offer larger discounts.  Please contact your local store for details.
