Spellbound Children’s Bookshop wants to partner with your school! We believe that a school partnership is a critical community partnership, and just one more way that we can accomplish our mission of raising lifelong readers who are curious, imaginative and independent thinkers. By partnering with us you can take advantage of our intimate knowledge of books for kids and teens and keep the dollars local! Here are just some of the benefits we can provide:
Spellbound offers 20% off retail for most books purchased for library or classroom use. Just call us or use the contact form on our website to give us a list of titles and quantities, and we’ll get you a quote right away.
Spellbound works with publishers to bring authors to speak at schools. Many award-winning children’s authors are local to Asheville or may come through on book tour, and there is no better way to get kids excited about books than through a presentation with a live author!
Library or Classroom Book Drive
For schools working on stocking their library or classrooms with books, you can quickly and easily create a wishlist on our website. We can work with you to publicize the school’s book drive to parents and other supporters, who can purchase books in the store or online during the drive period. The featured books are offered at a 10% discount and we will deliver them to the school free of charge.
Summer Reading/Required Reading Lists
Schools or individual teachers can contact Spellbound to register their summer reading lists or other required reading lists, and Spellbound can make sure to have books on the list available. We can also post the lists on our website.
Spellbound’s years of experience and advance knowledge of forthcoming books can be a wonderful resource for teachers and librarians. We’ll come to your school, present the latest releases to you and take orders so that you can stay ahead of the curve and have the newest books as soon as they are available!
We also sell the Go Local card. Sales of the card support the Asheville City Schools Foundation. We offer a 10% discount on in-stock items with presentation of the Go Local card at time of purchase (not to be combined with other discounts).
